Phase 1 of the #Sangdéchet 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 napkins 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.
