Starting late August, we will be offering offices across Metro Vancouver the opportunity to register for a short, 45-minute Lunch & Learn webinar for their employees to learn about the growing problem of single-use item waste and simple steps they can take to do their part!

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying current single-use item habits by employees.
  • Providing the most current information on:
    • Upcoming federal, provincial, and municipal regulations
    • Regional waste management system logistics
    • Most/least problematic single-use item materials, in terms of recyclability & compostability
    • Marine impacts of single-use items
  • Best practices for increasing reuse.
  • Connection to local sharing platforms
  • Planning and launching in-house waste reduction initiatives

Look out for OAC’s Outreach Booth at Community Events this summer & fall to learn how you can do your part to help our oceans & reduce your single-use item waste!

You’ll find us at events across Metro Vancouver, including:
