2019, Year of the Environment - Buy less, buy better, and save the planet

(Theme 5 – Food, Theme 7 – Waste, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: NU – Your Zero Waste Grocery Store

Timeline for Completion: Started 2017 Ongoing

Objective:

Our goal is to offer a zero waste option for almost every daily grocery need, with the exception of meat and fish.

The average Canadian produces more than 700 kg of waste per year, one of the highest rates among developed countries. Many of us recycle and compost, but the majority of our waste still ends up in a landfill.

Waste pollutes our waterways, our soils and even our air – landfills generate 20% of Canada’s methane emissions. There’s good news though: we can do something about it!

Adopting zero waste shopping habits means saying no to unnecessary and single-use packaging, and buying sustainable products in the quantities that we really need. No more packaging waste. No more food waste.

Our store is located at 1130 Wellington Street West in Ottawa’s Hintonburg neighbourhood. We are at the corner of Wellington and Rosemount.
