Our 
Story

Our group began through the collaboration of six youth that came together through a youth program focused on tackling climate change at the local level. We wanted to help support other actions being taken at the grassroots level and found that local groups around the city were organizing to tackle single use plastics at the neighbourhood level.

We organize with other grassroots groups around plastic reduction. This involves coming together through community events focusing on waste reduction (e.g. low was holidays) and community clean ups.
