Advocacy Training: Zero Plastic Waste

Frustrated with plastic pollution and the confusing, misleading and over-the-top packaging that is plaguing our waste system? Do you want to see our governments act on plastic pollution and hold companies accountable for the disposable products and packaging they create?

Join us on Thursday, May 31st for a training session all about plastics, advocacy and local-level action!

As a locally-focused watchdog on issues like waste, we advocate for system-level changes that will reduce pollution and hold companies accountable for the products and packaging they create.

In July, our local government will be considering how to act on plastics and they are considering actions like bans and fees. But with well-funded lobbyists pushing back, we need to mobilize and be louder than the lobbyists. We’re hosting an advocacy training session to help community members push this issue forward with our decision makers.

In this training, we'll talk about our campaign and approach, what Toronto can do (and what other cities have done), and how you can advocate. With 30 years of experience advocating at City Hall, our TEA team has lots of skills and insights to share!
