What is meant by distributing eco-friendly items?
The Fonds Éco IGA and Earth Day Canada are joining forces to deploy a squad reaching out to citizens of Quebec and New Brunswick to raise awareness and help them reduce their carbon footprint. By distributing eco-friendly products at an accessible price, households will be able to take sustainability into their own hands.
Since its inception, the program has distributed various items, including over 350 used battery collectors, nearly 24,000 household composters and more than 90,000 rainwater barrels. Starting in 2019, a single-use plastic reduction starter kit was offered.
New for 2021, this year’s eco-friendly kit is 100% Quebec-made. Once again, this year, awareness workshops given by our agents will be offered as they are being distributed.
Sign-up to pick up your kit at participating IGAs in Quebec and New Brunswick and come to our Awareness Squad meeting from May 15 to August 21. In addition to steering its mission towards eco-responsibility, Fonds Éco IGA supports the local economy by including products in the kit that are made in Quebec.
ITEMS IN THE KIT
Composed of 100% Quebec-made products, this kit will allow citizens to shift towards a more eco-responsible daily life for just $30 (market value of $80).
