Circular Economy Month and Waste Reduction Week 2023

The third week of Circular Economy Month in October is recognized as Waste Reduction Week in Canada. Transforming our material culture from a take-make-waste model, to one that includes reuse-share-repair-replenish will have many positive impacts. During the month of October, we will focus on exploring the concept of circular economy and amplifying its broader social, environmental, and economic benefits. Visit our Waste Reduction Week webpage to learn more!
