Simons Vision

Used once and for only a few minutes, single-use products have an environmental impact that lasts much longer than the length of time for which they're used. They become trash in the blink of an eye!

Generally made of plastic coming from the petrochemical industry, the waste accumulating in our landfills and its destruction in incinerators has serious consequences. In fact, most waste releases methane and carbon dioxide gas into the atmosphere in addition to contaminating the surrounding water and soil with toxic substances. Besides landfills, it's our waterways and beaches that are the most affected by pollution. According to Ocean Conservancy, each year, it's estimated that 8 million metric tons of plastic are dumped into the oceans.

Using reusable products is one of the most effective ways to reduce our trash, save our natural resources, protect our environment, and, at the same time, save some money.

The best way to reduce our waste is to avoid producing it in the first place.

Reusable Versus Plastic Bottles

Coming in different sizes and colours, reusable bottles are a tool to reduce the amount of plastic that's produced and thrown away.

Reusable Versus Generic Coffee Cups

According to different estimates, Canadians use 1.5 to 2 million paper cups each year.1 Let's start using reusable cups every day to further reduce our carbon footprint!

Beeswax Versus Plastic Food Wraps

Made from fabric and beeswax, these food wraps can be reused over 100 times and are a great way to replace plastic with natural materials that aren't harmful for your health.

Reusable Versus Plastic Bags and Snack Bags

To carry fruits, vegetables, and bulk items, choose washable silicone and fabric bags rather than accumulating plastic bags.

Reusable Versus Disposable Wipes

An eco-friendly option that's gentle on your skin and on the planet, reusable wipes replace disposable pads and cotton swabs and can be used with your favourite products.
