Zero Waste Budget Shopping at U of T EcoFest

Monday 4th, from 4-6pm
Gradloft, 16 Bancroft Ave., second floor.

Yes! You can shop zero waste on a budget with no room for waste!

Pasta in plastic! Salad in plastic boxes! Seems like you only have bad options, between the budget stores with overpackaged foods, or the boutique stores with eco choices? Don't want to spend your budget on a "zero waste kit" with fancy stainless steel and produce bags?

Together we'll make a mason jar into a thermos, an old T-shirt into a shopping bag, a rag into a food wrap and a jar of ten cent toothpaste... and more virtually-free ways to shop zero waste. You'll leave with a list of local resources for shopping that won't harm the planet or your wallet, and a zero waste solution to try out. Tracey TieF is a "Zero-Waste Hero" featured in Beth Terry's bestseller Plastic Free How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too and the founder and teacher at Anarres Apothecary and Anarres Heath DOT ca .
