THINKING ABOUT REUSING?

EVEN BETTER!

There are far too many single-use containers in circulation, even though they are compliant with City of Montreal and Government of Canada regulations.

We’ve created a guide to help you better understand how to prioritize the use of reusable dishware and containers. We have everything to gain: a sustainable and visionary city, a population that is proud to live in it, and a healthier wallet and planet!
