What are the Festival's dates?

The 4th edition of the Zero Waste Festival is on October 30th to the 1st of November.

Is the Festival free?

Great news : for the most part, yes! You will have access to most activities offered during the Festival. You will need to purchase tickets for some of our workshops, but the prices are not too high: $15 tax inc. for QZWA members and $20 tax inc. for non-members. They are 60 minutes of interactive workshops, super interesting.

Why host an online festival this year?

This year, our beloved Festival shapeshifts! For its 4th edition, we’re going virtual! It will therefore be available for all in Quebec and even around the globe. While, of course, respecting social distancing measures in Canada.

Here is a sneak peek of our program for the 2.0 edition of the Zero Waste Festival :

  • Conferences by influencers and renowned peeps in the zero-waste industry ;
  • Workshops easily achievable from your living room ;
  • A virtual fair.

Is this event accessible for all family members?

Is this an eco-friendly event?

This is one of our challenges! All our exhibitors and food concessions have signed the Festival’s environmental charter, this committing to limiting their environmental footprint as much as possible. We also offset our carbon footprint coming from our use of technology in several ways. To learn more, please consult our environmental charter.

Who's behind the Festival and how did it come to be?

The Festival is a project by the Quebec Zero Waste Association (QZWA), founded in March 2017. The QZWA is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness and inspire citizens, governments, businesses, and regional groups to the many benefits of the zero-waste movement for the environment, health, and society of Quebec. The Association is committed to providing tools and support to initiate change.
