Since 1970, April 22 has been celebrated as Earth Day. To make our environment healthier, it is necessary to get involved in global activities such as collecting waste, using recyclable materials and encouraging businesses to control their greenhouse gas emissions.
On this occasion, we encourage the members of Halte 24-7 to dedicate this week to monitor their consumption in order to raise awareness on this subject. The goal is to encourage members to take action and change their daily habits to help protect our planet.
Here is the challenge of the day proposed to our members on the occasion of this week of the environment:
Monday, April 17th : Go zero waste and prepare your lunch and coffee in reusable containers.
Tuesday, April 18th : We will be collecting used batteries from members at the front desk throughout the week and bringing them to a designated location towards the end of the week. You can bring in your old phone or laptop battery, watch batteries, or batteries from your appliances and electronics for recycling.
Wednesday, April 19th : Support a local business, and even better if it's a fair trade one.
Here are some fair trade suggestions in the Plateau Mont-Royal:
- Café Rico 1207 Mont-Royal Avenue E
Established 18 years ago, it is the first 100% fair trade and organic coffee in Quebec. Its goal is to reach 100% zero waste.
- Épicerie Loco 368 Mont-Royal Avenue E
Ecological and zero waste grocery store offering healthy, ecological and packaging-free food and everyday products.
- VRAC & BOCAUX 1307 Mont-Royal Avenue E
V&B is a supermarket that focuses on unpackaged, regional and organic products.
Thursday, April 20th : We invite members to reduce their paper consumption. Here are some easy tips to apply daily:
- Prioritize scanning.
- Print only what is necessary.
- Use both sides and black and white.
- Reuse sheets as scrap paper.
Friday, April 21th : Walk or bike to the office and reduce your carbon emissions. If you live further away, take public transit or carpool!
