Phase 1 of the #Sangdéchet campaign is complete

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

Waste management has become a problematic issue for municipalities; the solution is to reduce it at the source. Tampons and sanitary napkins are single-use items, similar to straws, utensils, and take-out containers.

Less waste,it is beneficial on all levels and everyone is a winner: instead of paying about $125 at the dump to bury 1 ton of waste,the municipality provides this amount directly to their citizens and ensures that single-use pollutants and the cost of burying them are reduced.
