WHAT DOES THE CZD DECAL LOOK LIKE?
You will find the official decal of the Circuit Zero Déchet on the showcase or near the counter where is offered the “zero waste” service at the merchant-members. At 2.5 inches x 7 inches, water resistant, it has been designed to be visible and easily identifiable with its vibrant colors.
(Note: The final decal will not be watermarked.)
I AM A MERCHANT, HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER?
All merchants are encouraged to read the rules of practice to become a member and complete the required membership form. Membership fees for basic members including a decal in French. Decals are also available individually for current members. Taxes and handling fees not included.
You can also obtain the decal of the Circuit Zero Déchet free of charge from our ambassadors by filling out the form that has been given to them. These generous donors are the organizations, businesses, cities and RCMs that have voluntarily chosen to finance the membership of businesses in their community.
Any reproduction of the decal for resale purposes is prohibited. The sale of the decal is made only online or with the ADMINISTRATORS of the CIRCUIT ZÉRO DÉCHET. Thank you for your understanding.
I AM CITIZEN, HOW TO INFORM MERCHANTS ABOUT THIS INITIATIVE?
All citizens who wish to promote the Circuit Zéro Déchet (CZD) join our efforts by informing their favourite merchants about such an initiative. In order to ensure that a merchant can be part of the CZD, and if this location does not offer products sold in bulk, you must first ensure that it has a proper service area and/or that the merchant can accommodate you with reducing packaging at the source (refer to MAPAQ rules).
Other than the coffee in your travel mug, a merchant must be able to expand its service by offering you different products to fill your containers. However certain conditions apply, in the case of an artisan market that offers only one type of product, such as a honey farm or a specialty Coffee shop, as an example.
Note : We accept all «zero waste» merchants with bulk commodities, but also more conventional outlets such as grocery stores, fish markets, bakeries, restaurants and even pharmacies. Also note that we will not accept to list a business that sells products deemed «toxic» to human health or the environment by Health Canada, even if they are sold in bulk, e.g.: pesticides, fuel, engine oil, etc.
