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 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.

AS A MERCHANT, WHAT DOES THE DECAL IMPLY FOR ME?
All merchants who choose to join the Circuit Zéro Déchet and display our DECAL agree to read and apply the rules of use of the MAPAQ to service customers who bring their containers. The merchant is also committed to serving all customers with clean containers meeting the standards required by the MAPAQ.
WHERE DOES THE FUNDING GO?
All the funds collected will be used to start this project: the development of a more accessible internet platform, the printing of stickers by Quebec companies, and the management and administration of this project.
