We are here to make Calgary Plastic-Free

Did you know? The Canadian federal government has announced a strategy to ban harmful single-use plastic items in 2021, bringing Canada is one-step closer to zero waste by 2030. With this new strategy and the increase of plastic pollution in 2020, we want to help you prepare for the changes with our FREE Educational Events.

Periods: Equity, Cultural Perspectives and Reusable Period Products

This month’s Zero Waste Meet-up is a chat about Periods. Let's talk about reusable menstrual products, share our experiences using them, discuss the environmental impact of using reusables vs disposables and product accessibility for Canadians. Let's break down the taboo, lets chat about all issues faced by people who menstruate, which is unfortunately unheard of.

When: Monday, August 30th, 2021, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm MST
