This holiday season, we invite you to shop mindfully. Simple: Zero Waste Holiday Pop Up is a gathering of natural and earth-friendly brands, healthy food, toxin-free goods, local makers, speakers and zero waste warriors to make the holidays and gift-giving more meaningful. This community market is happening on October 26-27 at The Atrium, Eastwood Mall, QC.
This gathering provides an accessible platform for local businesses and buyers to foster connections and support one another. Find gifts that are unique, handmade without making a huge impact on the planet. Shop package-free personal care products such as shampoo bars, handcrafted soaps and lotions bars, reusable utensil kits, bamboo, stainless steel or glass straws, tumblers and sustainable home products. Bring your empty containers and fill them up with goods from the refillable stations. Find home plants, weaves, crafts and repurposed clothing. There will be sessions and talks on sustainability as well as donation stations as well for eco bricks, old books and school supplies.
