  • Emmanuel Bilodeau

    “This year, everything is shaken down and our environmental convictions now face a global pandemic, postponing all our plans to later. I thus wish to tackle environmental issues because they go far beyond a simple virus, despite how devastating it may be. We have to think about tomorrow, about our children and their descendants. The Zero Waste Festival promotes a healthy living based on the zero waste journey and encourages us to leave the smallest ecological footprint behind. Just like when going camping!"
