It is with great pride that the mayor of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and members of City Council announce the launch of the Zero-Waste Challenge, an experience that will lead nine families to adopt the best practices in waste management in response to new environmental challenges.
“This initiative is part of our shared desire to make Pointe-Claire a city that makes sustainable development a top priority, both through our municipal actions and the promotion of practices that help citizens protect the environment,” Mayor Belvedere said.
Accordingly, until January 28, 2021, the eight families representing each of the districts and one family from City Council will have to come up with ideas and take concrete steps to reduce their waste at the source, that is, from the moment of purchase. To do so, they will benefit from a support service and various workshops: making homemade household and personal care products, and preparing zero-waste lunches.
Throughout the challenge, the families will be sharing their findings, any tips they have learned and the challenges they have encountered in their effort to reduce their waste at the source on the City’s website and Facebook page.
“Everyone is invited to follow and encourage the families participating in the challenge, and to take up their own challenge!” Mayor Belvedere added.
