Albertans are waking up to the fact that environmentally sustainable products like solar heaters and LED lights aren’t just good for reducing carbon footprints. They’re also great ways to save money, and Vulcan’s Matthew Orr is one of the province’s most visible enviro-preneurs. The 25-year-old is the owner and operator of Canadian Sustainability and Water Solutions and was picked recently by the Globe and Mail as one of Calgary’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs. The company offers consumers everything from products like solar heaters and recycling bins to services like solar feasibility studies and water quality evaluations. Orr is not content just to sell sustainable products and services, either – he plans to lobby government to introduce more stringent efficiency measures in building codes for both residential and commercial infrastructure.
