Mr. Speaker, October 14 to 21 is Quebec Waste Reduction Week in all areas of Quebec.
Action RE-buts, the official organizer of the week, is strongly urging the people of Quebec to participate in this major event and to think seriously, both collectively and individually, about how we produce waste and, more importantly, how we can reduce waste.
Basically, this week serves as a good opportunity to assess how we are managing in terms of reducing, reusing, recycling and composting, in an attempt to make small changes to our everyday actions. This could mean taking the time to re-evaluate our consumption needs, our use of packaging, how we dispose of electrical appliances and all products, and encouraging creative recycling.
I would like to take this opportunity to encourage all Quebeckers to get involved in Quebec Waste Reduction Week.
