we are 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 are 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 #CleanCanadaTogether

We’re teaming up with municipalities across the country to support their efforts in keeping our communities clean. Using the hashtag #CleanCanadaTogether, participants from coast to coast can share their GLAD clean-up stories and help keep our cities beautiful.

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.
