Quebec Waste Reduction Week: The City of Saint-Lambert invites residents to watch the film A Plastic Ocean
The City of Saint-Lambert is taking advantage of Quebec Waste Reduction Week, taking place from October 21 to 29, to continue raising awareness about the use of single-use plastic shopping bags.
The City invites residents to come and watch the film A Plastic Ocean on October 25 at 7 p.m. at the multi-purpose centre (81 Hooper Street). The documentary, presented in English with French subtitles, exposes the impact that plastic pollution has on marine life. The screening will be followed by a discussion on alternatives to plastic as well as individual and collective solutions.
We remind residents that single-use plastic shopping bags will be banned in Saint-Lambert starting April 22, 2018. To this end, at its regular meeting on August 21, City Council adopted the By-law prohibiting certain plastic bags (2017-153). A promotional campaign will be carried out over the next few months to ensure customers and merchants are properly informed about this upcoming change and have the chance to prepare for it.
Residents wishing to participate are invited to reserve their places by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
