Zoo and poo. Words that rhyme and that, together, either make you giggle or gross you out. But if you’re ZooShare those words spell opportunity: to fight climate change, produce energy and make money for citizen impact investors. ZooShare raised $2.2M from 300 local investors to build North America’s first zoo biogas plant that will turn 3,000 tonnes of animal manure from the Toronto Zoo and 14,000 tons of inedible food waste from grocery stores into 4.1 million kilowatt-hours of renewable power and high quality fertilizer. That’s some serious poo power.
