    This introduction to the zero waste lifestyle workshop presents the ground rules of zero waste and how to apply them in your daily life. Reducing waste is good for the environment, but it is also good for oneself. Come and learn why! 

    Every minute, a truckload of waste is dumped into the ocean. Most of it is plastic waste that ends up in the stomachs of fish, birds and marine mammals. To put an end to plastic pollution, we need to address the source of the problem. By adopting a zero waste lifestyle you can reduce the amount of waste you create, sometimes down to one jar a year! Sounds crazy, but it's possible! 

    Presented by Valerie from NU Grocery.

    Cet atelier d'introduction au mode de vie zéro déchet présente les règles de base du zéro déchet et comment les appliquer dans sa vie quotidienne. Réduire ses déchets, c'est bon pour l'environnement, mais c'est aussi bon pour soi. Viens apprendre pourquoi! 

    Chaque minute, l'équivalent d'un camion poubelle de déchets est déversé dans l'océan. La plupart de ces déchets sont des emballages plastiques qui finissent dans l'estomac des oiseaux, poissons et mammifères marins. Pour en finir avec la pollution plastique, il faut agir à la source. Adopter un mode de vie zéro déchet, c'est réduire le montant de ses déchets, jusqu'à un seul bocal de déchets par an pour certains! Incroyable, mais pas si compliqué que ça. 

    Presenté par Valerie de NU Grocery. 

    Inscription requise. Les participants inscrits recevront un courriel supplémentaire contenant le lien Zoom avant le début du programme.
