Did you know?

In Quebec, some municipalities are encouraging the purchase of sustainable sanitary products (example: cloth diapers, eco-friendly soaps, environmentally friendly and sustainable sanitary protections, etc.).

Their goal is to reduce the consumption of single-use pollutants. Waste management has become a problematic issue for municipalities. The solution is to reduce the production of waste at the source.

To encourage these responsible purchases, these municipalities have set up a grant program. On the presentation of a proof of purchase, you could benefit from a refund*.

And the good news is that menstrual panties and Mme L’Ovary kits are eligible for these refunds!
