CONSIGNÉCO LAUNCHES IT’S “AFTER” CALENDER


Montreal, December 18, 2018 Now that the last chocolates in the Advent Calendar are a distant, but delicious memory, and a new year has begun, Consignéco is inviting all Quebecers to prolong this exciting tradition with none other than the After Calendar. Same idea, same satisfaction, but the difference is we switch the chocolate sweets for new ways to encourage the return of refundable containers 12 months of the year. It’s a great initiative for the environment and the community that pays off in more ways than one.

 

Did you know that 671 million refundable containers go unredeemed each year? That’s $39 million that could potentially help 8,000 organizations and 16,000 foundations recognized across Quebec. Even though the return rates are enviable, we can still do more to help the environment and give back 365 days a year!

 

“You’ve already signed up for the gym membership, you’ve been composting for a long time, and you made a promise to eat healthier, but you still might be looking for a more meaningful New Year’s resolution. If you believe that every gesture counts to protect the planet and you really want to make a difference in your community, be among the superheroes that make collecting refundable containers their daily mission,” says Pascale Demers, spokesperson for Consignéco.

 

We make redeeming empties easier than ever!

At a time when the environment occupies a prominent place in the news and doing good should be one of our main priorities, Consignéco is proud to introduce the After Calendar.

Unlike the aforementioned little chocolates in the Advent Calendar, redeeming empties won’t pack on the pounds and can be practiced without any moderation!

 

  1. January: Join 90% of Quebeckers who have made returns an everyday habit.

 

  1. February: Love is in the air! If you’re charmed by an inspirational cause or organization in your neighbourhood, it’s time to show some love. Why? Because 8% of non-profit organizations in Quebec use refundable containers as a source of funding, and for nearly a quarter of them (21%), it’s a matter of survival.

 

  1. March: Participate in one of the Refundable Container Drives organized by your local retailer. Last year, more than 109,000 empties were collected helping 20 causes across Quebec.

 

  1. April: This Earth Day, you can make a world of difference. When you know 100% of the materials in your empties can be recycled, it’s hard to deny.

 

  1. May: Suns out, windows are open and spring cleaning is on the agenda. Start by collecting the empty bottles and cans filled with magic memories of nights with friends watching the playoffs.

 

  1. June: Happy St-Jean! Whether you’re celebrating around a campfire, at the house or going to an event, make philanthropy and the protection of the environment a part of your national pride.

 

  1. July: After you’ve lugged the fridge up three flights of stairs, put a fresh coat of paint on the wall and taken your last bite of moving day pizza, make better use of your empties by placing them in a bag and hanging them from your mailbox with a note that says “to give away. This little treasure could make your neighbourhood “Valoriste” very happy.

 

  1. August: When everyone gets back from their summer vacation, why not set up a container in the office for returnable cans and bottles. It’s a unique way for you and your colleagues to start saving for the next office party.

 

  1. September: Going back to school? A well-organized refundable container drive can bring in up to $4000 in one day so why not motivate your classmates to bring in their empties from home. It could add up to a school trip at the end of the year!

 

  1. October: Candies are so… 2017. This Halloween why not relieve your neighbours of their neglected empties.

 

  1. November: Give a new twist to this year’s Movember challenge and turn your empties into a donation that will support the battle against prostate cancer.

 

  1. December: There’s so much to celebrate this holiday season, including the 15 lives of a reusable bottle and the 60 days it takes to process a can and get it back onto the shelves of your favorite retailer. Cheers!

THE QUEBEC REMPARTS INVITE FANS TO BREAK A RECORD


Québec, September 29, 2017 –  Pumped up and ready to hit the ice to show their skills and get the crowd cheering, the Quebec Remparts have an inspiring record to break: giving back to their community by collecting tons of refundable cans. In addition, they need your help. Throughout the season, take part in the game by dropping off your empties in the marked campaign containers. You will be supporting les Ambassadeurs de coeur, a group of six community organizations working to help families in need in the region of Quebec. Objective: help the environment while transforming your community. 

“We all know how important recycling is and for the Remparts, teaming up with Consigneco to participate in this campaign and help community organizations in the region of Quebec was a natural fit”, says Louis Painchaud, Vice President of Operations, Quebec Remparts.

“Consigneco salutes the leadership of the Quebec Remparts and the support of the fans who will allow them to perform as impressively as they do for every match. Returning cans is one of the most efficient ways to protect the environment being the materials are 100% recyclable. It also constitutes a source of financing for a variety of community projects. I wholeheartedly hope that the initiative with the Remparts will inspire others and that businesses and organizations in the region of Quebec will in turn contribute to the refundable can social movement that is growing in Quebec”, adds Pascale Demers, spokesperson for Consigneco. 

During the Remparts first home game, pinning them against the Shawinigan Cataractes, hockey lovers could watch two players, team Captain Matthew Boucher and goalie Dereck Baribeau, in action in a humorous video projected on a giant screen (https://youtu.be/37U01ajGEKY).

Numerous return containers have also been installed on the site, allowing spectators to support their team and help them set a new record in support of les Ambassadeurs de coeur. Again, Les Ambassadeurs de coeur regroups six organizations: La Bouchee genereuse, Motivaction Jeunesse, le Pignon Bleu, le Patro Laval, la Fondation Philippe Boucher et le Patro Roc-Amadour. These organizations all have one point in common, which is helping young people and families in need in the region of Quebec. 

Did you know that can refunds were established in Quebec more than 200 years ago by the brewing industry? In fact, all beer containers can be returned for refund, without exception. Quebec is a pioneer in North America for can refunding. Nearly 80% of refundable containers are returned. Despite these impressive numbers, every year, in Quebec, more than 515 million refundable cans are not returned…which represents a value of nearly $30 million. In the Capital region only, we estimate that nearly 46 million refundable cans disappear, a value of about $2.7 million. We can identify more than 450 community groups and foundations that could greatly benefit from that kind of financial help to support their missions and bring projects to life. 

ABOUT THE QUEBEC REMPARTS

The Quebec Remparts hockey club, owned by Quebecor Sports and Entertainment, is a member of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League which consists of 18 teams throughout Quebec and the Maritimes. Since 1997, the Quebec Remparts have made a name for themselves in greater metropolitan Quebec and developed a sense of belonging among the public in the region. They have been playing at the Videotron Centre since September 2015, a multifunctional amphitheatre with more than 18,000 seats. Follow the Remparts: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

ABOUT LES AMBASSADEURS DE CŒUR

Les Ambassadeurs de cœur is a group of several individuals and businesses who have associated themselves with the Quebec Remparts.

THE CHRISTMAS ELVES’ BIG PRANK


Montreal, December 19, 2016 – Wishing to end the year with a bang, the mischievous elves have scattered 460 million unreturned refundable containers all over the province just days before Christmas. Hidden under park benches, buried in snow or stuffed beneath the seats at the local arena, the containers are worth their weight in gold: some 28 million dollars! That’s quite the Christmas wish for the 8000 organizations and 16,000 foundations that depend on refundable containers for income. It is a good deed that can be repeated 365 days a year!

 

The elves are obviously enticing us to join in on a real treasure hunt! Just days before Christmas, what can be better than to search for “green” cans to give back to your community! Ready, set… collect!

 

“Environmentally, deposit-return is one of the most beneficial options because 100% of the material collected is recycled. It is also a great source of financing for all kinds of community projects. Clearly, the true value of our refundable containers can make a difference and transform our communities,” said Consignéco spokeswoman Pascale Demers.

 

A Léger survey confirms that 8% of Quebec non-profit organizations use the proceeds from refundable containers for financing. In fact, it is a matter of life and death for nearly a quarter (21%) of those. 86% of the organizations surveyed indicated that the deposit should be increased to provide even better benefits for the environment.

CONSIGNÉCO AND THE SÉPAQ: 160,000 EMPTIES SHOW THEIR WORTH. MANY MORE TO COME, ALL 100% RECYCLED.


Quebec, June 21, 2016 – Consignéco and the Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (Sépaq) are joining forces for a fifth straight year to track down empties and get full value from them. After inciting visitors to Oka, Mont-Orford and Yamaska national parks to return their valuable refundable containers to support the Parcs Québec Fund through the refund on deposit, Montmorency Falls park, as well as Îles-de-Boucherville and Mont-Saint-Bruno national parks have joined the movement. The goal is to make a big difference for the environment… one refundable container at a time. How? By visiting these magnificent sites and dropping the empties into the bins sporting the campaign colours and the words “Your empties for a good cause”.

The windfall from this partnership is already stunning: 160,000 refundable containers have been 100% recycled, providing nearly $9000 to the Parcs Québec Fund and supporting exciting initiatives. These include the knowledge base on reptiles at Oka national park, restoration of the caribou habitat in Gaspésie national park and archaeological digs at Lac-Témiscouata national park’s archeological site. The three parks coming on board already have recovery infrastructure and campaign imagery to incite visitors to locate and deposit their empties at the right place. This video [https://vimeo.com/71353545] shows the full scope of this inspiring Refund for Causes movement.

“We are excited about the idea of expanding this partnership throughout the Sépaq network and raising awareness among an ever growing number of consumers as to the potential value of our refundable containers. Empties pay off both environmentally and socially. On the eve of our annual invasion of our majestic parks, we encourage visitors to commit a simple act to support the environment and, in turn, the Parcs Québec Fund so that future generations can also enjoy the splendors of nature”, said Consignéco spokesperson Pascale Demers.

“Sustainable development and protecting the environment are the fundamental values that guide our daily activities. This partnership aligns perfectly with our vision and lets us not only recover and draw value from recyclable products, but also helps conserve our natural lands so that we can pass this legacy on to our grandchildren and great-grandchildren”, added Sépaq President/CEO, John MacKay.
     
Every year in Quebec, more than 460 million refundable containers, worth $25 million, go un-redeemed. A vast assessment study has shown that most come from the industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) sectors. Many are also found in SÉPAQ establishments which is why the initiatives to reach and motivate consumers are so important.


“In addition to contributing to the economic development of our regions, national parks provide an outstanding glimpse of Quebec’s wealth in natural resources. Today’s announced initiative is ideal for enhancing the value and beauty of our resources, reducing our environmental footprint, and adding even greater protection to our wildlife and its habitats”, said Minister responsible for Forests, Wildlife and Parks, Laurent Lessard.

“As with selective collection, deposit return is part of the solution in the fight against climate change, the depletion of non-renewable resources and the quality of our ecosystems. This association with Sépaq shows that the windfall from the deposit return system goes beyond the social and environmental sphere. It is a simple, tangible gesture that can generate significant economic gains that can underwrite a variety of causes. Together, we can successfully transition to a strong, innovative economy that is also more carbon-friendly and respects the environment. We must meet this important challenge so that our children can live in a prosperous, responsible society that eschews waste. Let’s do it for them!”, added Minister of Sustainable Development, the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change, David Heurtel.

“Consignéco and the Sépaq can be proud of the progress the past few years. Their broadening partnership is helping achieve the fundamental goal of the Residual Materials Management Policy, namely for end-of-life waste to be the only residual material disposed in Quebec. We fully encourage this initiative, which provides a concrete example of how citizens can help the environment and support finance causes they hold dear. This project shows how we can make a difference together”, concluded RECYC-QUÉBEC President/CEO Dany Michaud.
     
ABOUT SÉPAQ AND THE PARCS QUÉBEC FUND
SÉPAQ is responsible for managing and developing public lands and tourist equipment entrusted to it by the government. It has established the Parcs Québec Fund to exclusively support projects for the protection of plant and animal wildlife, the maintenance of habitats and the conservation of our cultural heritage in our national parks. Donations to the Parcs Québec Fund go to research, monitoring and inventory activities which serve to collect valuable data, in particular for the conservation of plant and wildlife species. www.fondsparcsquebec.com

LOVE YOUR EMPTIES, LOVE YOUR PLANET A spectacular 100%-recycled observation tower being erected on The Main


Montreal, June 10, 2016 – A spectacular 8-metre tall observation tower made from 100% recycled material is being erected on Saint-Laurent Boulevard – corner of Marianne – in Montreal. The idea is to provide an outstanding view of the MURAL festival, which starts today and continues until June 19, and apply the bold talent and vision of internationally-renowned American artist DJ Neff of the CANLOVE collective. He will showcase the full economic, social and environmental potential of refundable containers.   

– Did you know that Quebecers do not return more than 460 million refundable containers each year? 
– Did you know that those empties, laid end to end, would circle the globe
– Did you know that these precious forsaken empties are worth their weight in gold: 25 million dollars?   

Luckily, some of these will be transformed into a castle gracing the storied Saint-Laurent Boulevard to the delight of its visitors!   

“With this original work of art, we want to show that loving your empties means loving your planet! The refundable container system is one of the practices most benefiting the environment as 100% of the material collected is recycled. It also provides financing for all sorts of community projects. Clearly, by appreciating the value of our empties, we can make a difference and transform our community,” said Consignéco spokesperson Pascale Demers.
  

#consignelove
 
Consignéco invites everyone to guess how many refundable containers were used to build the impressive three-storey tall tower. Simply share an original photograph relating to the MURAL event, the erection of the tower, or the refundable container system by using the #consignelove hash tag for a chance to win the refund value of the empties used to build the castle. An equal amount will be given to Les Valoristes, a coop helping people in need by managing a temporary refundable container depot centre.   

“More than 100,000 refundable containers have been collected thanks to the outstanding efforts of Les Valoristes. In addition to the construction of a magnificent tower, Consignéco wishes to applaud and encourage the Coopérative des Valoristes, add a spectacular touch to the event and give impetus to a solidarity movement,”
 added Ms. Demers.

Refund for Causes Movement CHAMBRE DE COMMERCE DE L’EST DE MONTREAL PLAYS “MATCHMAKER”


Montreal, April 21, 2015 – Known for its leadership and “green” initiatives, the Chambre de commerce de l’Est de Montréal (CCEM) has joined the Refund for Causes social movement to show that “sustainable development” and “philanthropy” can be an ideal match. The organization will play matchmaker by urging its members to join forces to help the environment and make a difference in their community. Clearly, the CCEM is poised to become the matchmaker of choice for happy marriages by driving an initiative that is winning over more businesses, organizations and municipalities every day!  

The idea is simple: businesses gather refundable containers from their own premises in support of a cherished cause, while simultaneously improving their environmental performance. Meanwhile, the receiving organizations benefit from the return on deposit to give life to their projects and support their causes. As an added bonus, Consignéco offers a wealth of practical advice to accompany “future couples” along with a technological matchmaking platform that helps geolocate potential partners and foster lasting and prosperous unions. In addition, the CCEM will work hard to motivate its members to swell the ranks of this most inspiring movement.  

“There are tremendous opportunities for partnerships between businesses and organizations in Quebec where some 460 million refundable cans, worth $25 million, are not returned every year. Our studies show that most of these containers are “lost” in industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) settings. For Consignéco, this shows the great importance of joining forces with leaders like the CCEM to encourage businesses to take part in Refund for Causes by donating ‘their empties’ to a good cause,” said Consignéco spokeswoman Pascale Demers.  

“The Chambre de commerce de l’Est de Montréal promotes social responsibility within the business community through a variety of activities and initiatives. Though its mission is basically economic, the CCEM wishes to gradually instill new attitudes that encourage East End companies to give back to the community by emphasizing values of commitment and involvement,” noted CCEM CEO Isabelle Foisy.  

The CCEM has already celebrated an initial union likely to give rise to offspring: a partnership between the 5600 Hochelaga Street real estate complex that houses the CCEM, and the Programme d’information sur le travail et la recherche d’emploi de Montréal (PITREM), a community organization for the social, professional and economic insertion of 35-year-olds and under. The Chamber has unveiled an entertaining video on this promising “marriage made in heaven”.
 

Le 5600 Hochelaga is a 700,000 sq. ft. real estate complex with over a hundred tenants managing companies working in various fields: storage, brewing, decoration, woodwork, bingo, sports and recreational centres, business offices and many others. Le 5600 Hochelaga is a shining example of our high level of availability. We offer unparalleled service, because our home is your home, and that is our priority!
Le 5600 Hochelaga is very much involved in Montreal’s East End business community. Le 5600 Hochelaga has a lofty and moral obligation to reinject a share of its success into the social fabric through non-profit organizations, and by means of social economy and reinsertion,” said 5600 Hochelaga manager Jacques Dupras.
 

“Consignéco’s and PITREM’s values align perfectly. It will benefit the latter via the sums of money to be used to pay internships for hundreds of young Montrealers seeking a positive work experience that will without doubt have a positive impact on their lives,” added PITREM CEO Danielle Lacombe.  

In the Montreal region alone, there are an estimated 114 million unreturned refundable empties, a waste of about $6.8 million. Yet there are over 1,200 community groups and foundations that could certainly appreciate extra funding to support their causes and give life to exciting initiatives. In this light, Refund for Causes provides an attractive fulcrum for charitable associations and organizations that need every ounce of their nerve and creative instincts to ensure their longevity, just like any company requiring constant innovation to reduce their environmental footprint.
 

ABOUT THE CHAMBRE DE COMMERCE DE L’EST DE MONTRÉAL

The mission of the Chambre de commerce de l’Est de Montréal (CCEM) is to serve and protect the economic and social interests of the 32,000 on-site businesses. With about 1,200 members, the Chambre is the most important association for businesspeople in the city’s East End. It exerts its leadership to arouse the active participation of its milieu’s socioeconomic stakeholders. The Chambre de commerce de l’Est de Montréal covers a vast territory from Saint-Laurent Boulevard to the eastern tip of the Island, between the Rivière des Prairies and the St. Lawrence River.  

ABOUT CONSIGNÉCO

WANTED: 462.5 million empties REWARD: $28 million… and a healthier environment


Québec, October 14, 2013 – The latest Most Wanted list has been released! Topping the list: 462.5 million empties. The reward: a helping hand for the planet and $28 million, which is the value of refundable empties that go unclaimed every year. Enough to help every one of the 8,000 organizations and 16,000 foundations in Québec do their good deeds. Something to encourage people and companies to return their empties. A way to relieve the environment while making a positive difference for the community. 

“The deposit return social movement is clearly set to gain momentum. Already, over a hundred organizations and numerous companies and municipalities across Québec have answered Consignéco’s call to put the social potential of empty containers to good use by supporting a worthwhile cause or organization. A growing number of people have adopted this practice at the workplace and we hope to build on their success,” noted Consignéco spokeswoman Pascale Demers.

To further boost the movement and salute the difference-makers, Consignéco has developed an interactive geo-locator map to find organizations in the movement that are ready to take your valuable empties. Support groups opting for deposit-return can download a collection kit from www.consigneco.org. This financing tool can help them better structure their charitable campaigns. Consignéco also showcases current campaigns and the ever increasing success stories from Québec companies.

“Does your organization use deposit-return as a financing tool? Make yourselves visible on our interactive map and tell us about your achievements! Does your employer convert empties into money for a good cause? Consignéco wants to hear about it and recognize you: bask in the spotlight! Does your company have a sustainable development plan that could use new ideas to improve your performance? Then the deposit return social movement is for you!” added Ms. Demers. She invites interested parties to write toinfo@consigneco.org or submit their initiatives on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Consigneco.

Note that deposit return is an amount that is fully reimbursed when the empty container is returned. It therefore costs nothing to environmentally-responsible consumers who return their empties.
