Swapping, sharing, or refurbishing extends product / material lifecycles and diverts them from disposal. On the weekend of Waste Reduction Week, we are encouraging Canadians to think about the lifecycle of their materials and learn more about sustainable consumption, the sharing economy, and extending the life of materials through reuse.
Organize a Swap, Share, or Repair Event
On Saturday and Sunday of Waste Reduction Week, promote reuse in your community by organizing a swap, share, or repair event. Common materials brought to swap events include: clothing, accessories, furniture, small household appliances - anything! Register your event here!
