A week from now, Call2Recycle® will participate in the eighth “Projet ÉCOSPHÈRE” event just outside Brome, Quebec. In the words of the event’s general manager, Eric Ferland, “Projet ÉCOSPHÈRE is Quebec’s number one environmental event with more than 190 exhibitors and 40 conferences. Our goal is to bring together as many environmental and sustainable development actors as possible so that people can receive information on how and which products to buy to help change our personal habits.”
Projet ÉCOSPHÈRE will showcase the newest and most entrepreneurial developments in: architecture and green building; new green technologies; nutrition; ecological agriculture; resources; health; arts and crafts; and fashion and design.
In 2012, almost 10,000 people were drawn to the two-day event which this year includes such attractions as a keynote address by French journalist and renowned author Hervé Kempf, and a showing of the educational film “What children will we leave to the planet?” directed by Anne Barth, who will also make a guest appearance.
Call2Recycle’s director for Eastern Canada, Jean-Paul Thieblot, said of Projet ÉCOSPHÈRE, “Such events are great for us to participate in because they promote not just recycling, but recycling as a key component of sustainable development. We look forward to the opportunity Écosphère will give us to educate consumers, and to provide information on the Call2Recycle program to a wide audience.”
Projet ÉCOSPHÈRE runs from 10am to 9pm on Saturday, September 21st and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday, September 22nd. Further information can be found online at http://projetecosphere.orgShare
