Be a part of the green transition

Imagine a world in which organic, eco-responsible, and zero-waste products cost a lot less than products that pollute.

Phase 1 of the #sandéchet campaign is complete

With operation #sangdéchet, we encourage municipalities to offer financial assistance to citizens who buy eco-friendly alternatives like sustainable menstrual products.

Waste management has become a problematic issue for municipalities, and the solution is to reduce waste at its source. Tampons and sanitary pads are single-use items, just like straws, utensils, and takeout containers.

Less waste is beneficial on every level, and everyone’s a winner. Instead of paying about $125 at the dump to bury 1 ton of waste, the municipality gives the same amount directly to citizens, ensuring that single-use pollutants and the cost of burying them are reduced.
