The #ReuseRevolution project aims at showing that reusable and refill systems are the solutions to the plastic crisis, and that customers are ready for it.
During #WorldRefillWeek (Nov. 6-13), activities will be held in supermarkets across the world to engage with customers and call on supermarkets to provide reusable and refill options.
Our activities will take place on Saturday, November 9th, starting at 10 am and will be focused on a few of the top supermarket chains: Safeway, Walmart, and Real Canadian Superstore.

“Bag It is a documentary that focuses on the world’s overuse of plastic bags and other plastic items. It’s a light-hearted film that is both educational and entertaining as it calls out our everyday use of plastic and other items we think can be recycled that actually aren’t recyclable at all.
This film leaves a lasting impression because it points out all the everyday plastic items you use that you may overlook. For example, milk used to come in glass containers — now it comes in cardboard containers with plastic caps. Where do those plastic caps go once you throw them out? Are they even recyclable? Think more about what you use, and you’ll find plastic all around you."

We are starting 2018 with a FREE movie screening on Saturday, January 27th. Screening will be followed by discussions of green initiatives.
We are living special times where the ecological, economic and social crises around the world are threatening our future and the future of our planet. Yet, there are solutions everywhere in the world!
Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent, together with a team of four people, carried out an investigation in ten different countries to figure out what may lead to this disaster and above all how to avoid it.
During their journey, they met the pioneers who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education. Joining those concrete and positive actions which are already working, they began to figure out what could be tomorrow's world…
Join us in this special journey to a possible Tomorrow.
