Cobourg Farmers Market - World Oceans Day

To celebrate World Oceans Day we’ll be setting up a special booth at the Cobourg Farmers Market.

We’ll have our usual zero waste goodies available for purchase but we’ll also be showcasing some of the treasures we’ve found on the shores of Lake Ontario over the past month as we’ve completed over 60 shoreline cleanups during our Love Your Lake program. Pop by our booth to learn about what waste is littering Lake Ontario and pick up a free copy of our book Nurdle the Turtle: Lessons in Litter.

Join us after the market for a litter cleanup at Cobourg Beach from 2 pm - 4 pm.

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!
