We're GLAD for Change™.

Canadians are becoming more and more aware of the impact of their choices on the environment. Because of who we are, we want to help. So, we’re on a mission to help Canadians waste better and waste less. And we’re starting by helping divert 3 million tonnes of waste from landfills by 2030. We’ll also be working with consumers, governments, material suppliers, and retailers — to ensure that Glad® is a force for good in the world.

Because we’re more than GLAD®. We’re GLAD for Change™.

Why we're GLAD for Change.

We’re on a mission to help divert 3 million tonnes of waste from landfills by 2030. That’s the weight of about 456,128 school buses! Diverting waste from landfills can lead to many environmental benefits, for example: more available land for things like farming, a reduction of methane gas production, and the conservation of non-renewable resources.

We’re GLAD® to work with governments.

There are many ways we work with municipalities to actively evoke change. Here are a few of the things that we do:

  • • Lead municipal workshops to educate about waste diversion by providing guidelines on impact from diversion as well as what waste goes where
  • • Partner with municipalities to support launch of diversion programs via samples
  • • Educate & raise awareness of the benefits of having diversion streams as part of their waste management

We’re GLAD® for products that help.

At GLAD®, we’re always working to find new ways of creating quality products that can help you help the planet. We’re supporting our recycled products and launching a new food protection portfolio with solutions to prevent food waste. Because the less food we waste, the less waste that ends up in landfills. Here’s a sneak peek at some of those products.
