Greenpeace invites you to join us for a three-day event at the Green Living Show – Canada’s largest healthy living show dedicated to showing simple solutions to living a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

Help us spread easy tips and information to help people to contribute and create a greener world. This is a great opportunity to join us as we work to end global ocean plastic pollution and pressure corporations and governments to #breakfreefromplastic.  

We need volunteers to help us at our booth and engage with visitors by highlighting meaningful steps that people can take by joining a global movement of people fighting for a single-use-plastic free planet. Come and show your support for environmental protection and engage with us on this important issue on plastics.
