Let's demand that Provigo equip itself with washing stations
SIGN THE PETITION AND JOIN THE MOVEMENT #ProvigoOuiContenants and make your voice heard.
Let's demand that Provigo immediately install washing stations for reusable food containers in all its grocery stores in Quebec and Canada.
Danielle Doucet, an outraged citizen!
Danielle Doucet, a Gatineau resident whose family adopted a "zero waste" lifestyle, used her own containers for her purchases at her local Provigo to avoid encouraging industrial overpackaging.
Unfortunately, for the past few weeks, the company's management has indicated that this option would no longer be possible, mentioning risks of contamination that are too high. Indeed, MAPAQ requires grocers to sell their products in sterilized containers but it does not prevent consumers from using their own containers.
Consumers want to make their own choice! The #ProvigoOuiContainers movement tells the grocery chain that we will no longer tolerate this kind of environmentally morally dubious practice.
STOP to plastic overwrap!
Excessive plastic consumption and the pollution associated with it constitute one of our society's major environmental challenges.
As aware citizens, we want to reduce our environmental impact, so we are all asking Provigo to equip itself and do what is necessary to respect our consumer choices.
Every consumer must have the choice to do as he wishes, to consume according to his own desires and principles of life! Big grocery stores can't force us to pollute by buying plastic packaging if we don't want to! This is outrageous!!!!
But we are confident that the Provigo food chain will listen and be available to their consumers' environmental concerns.
Citizens, stay connected because we will submit this petition to Provigo.
