Join us in Beamsville for a Christmas Market! We’ll have our booth set up with lots of zero waste goodies to sell to raise funding for our Love Your Lake Project. Our goal this year is to stuff 1,000 stockings with a reusable straw (We carry stainless steel and silicone straws) in order to reduce the use of single use plastic straws. Just this past summer we picked up 2,761 straws from the shores of Lake Ontario. Using a reusable straw is a simple change that can have a huge impact over time!
