In 2016, Statistics Canada reported that our nation’s residential sector generated a whopping 10.2 million tonnes of waste. Do you feel guilty throwing out big bags of waste? Are you a budget-conscious person, looking to keep matter out of landfills?

Most everyone who decides to explore the zero waste lifestyle has a “why” behind what they’re doing, but they don’t always have the “how-to.” Join Leadership Consultant Laurence Pechadre to discover new solutions to declutter your life, and reduce the amount of garbage you produce on a daily basis! Over the course of the evening, you’ll learn new habits — for home, at work or on the road.
