As Waste Reduction Week begins in Canada, Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks has a challenge for you.

Go one week without using single-use packaging. If drink you water from disposable plastic bottles, this could be your contribution to a cleaner Parry Sound region.

It’s only one way of reducing waste during WRW running between October 15th and the 21st.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada suggests cutting down on household pollutants and properly dispose of herbicides, pesticides, paints, and cleaning products and where possible, recycle, reuse, and compost as part of their plan for healthy oceans.
