Green Goals is a small community project focused raising money and resources and donate it towards providing practical low waste solutions for lower income homes.
Many people complain that starting a low waste journey is too expensive to begin with. Initially, it's true. The start up cost is hard to justify when there isn't a lot of disposable income available after the bills are paid. However, after time, people do see cost cutting benefits because they don't have to keep spending money on single use items. In many ways, single use is a dead end lifestyle of spending money. Green Goals is looking for solutions to stop that cycle and start a better one centred around sustainability.
This site is dedicated to finding ways to cut single use waste on an individual and household level.
When you think about it, we have food banks to help people eat. Why not have a program in place that works on bringing lower waste living habits to people who wouldn't otherwise be able to access durable and reusable products?
What started out as a mom on maternity leave trying to make a small impact has turned into an ongoing project. Stay tuned to find out what projects have impacted the growing effort to collectively curb our single use consumption.
Green Goals began with the first goal to help households access lower waste materials for their homes regardless of their income level. With the help of the first Green Goals Seals business supporters, we were able to build a kit compiled of materials, and tips to lower anyone's overall waste consumption. Each kit was worth $200 and were donated to the Salvation Army, individuals and charity events.

Every business that posts a seal on their door has taken a stand to find ways to limit the amount of garbage they produce at each point of sale they make. From choosing ecologically conscious products to encouraging guests to bring their own pre cleaned container, you can see where the change is being made by these Green Goals businesses.
This year, all proceeds collected from the seals are being used to create sustainable starter kits for households who want to begin a lifestyle of low waste in their kitchens.
