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.
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
