22 April: Earth Day

Monday 22 April 2019

This year, the Fonds Éco IGA  launches a new program to raise the population’s awareness of the importance of reducing single-use plastics by offering low-priced plastic-reduction starting kits.

Introduction workshop

A short, 15-minute workshop will  be held to inform citizens on the environmental consequences linked with plastic use. Earth Day personnel will provide simple, practical ways to reduce plastic use. At the end of the workshop, a mystery item will be drawn between the participants.

Plastic waste reduction kit

In addition to the workshop, the Fonds Éco IGA will be offering a plastic waste reduction kit at the cost of $30 (retail value $75), to help citizens reduce their plastic use. The kit includes:

  • 2 silicon food bags
  • 4 fruits and vegetables nets
  • 1 trio of beeswax food wraps
  • 4 stainless steel straws with cleaning brush

In Magog, the workshop and kits distribution will take place on Saturday, June 15.
