Working towards being a sustainable, zero waste farmers market

Zero Waste is in our Hands!

GO GREEN Campaign

It is with great delight we inform you that together, we diverted 80% of our waste from the landfill during our GO GREEN campaign – a 23% increase! That means we went from a 57% diversion rate prior to GO GREEN to 80% during GO GREEN. This could not have been done without the collective efforts of our volunteers in the waste management and reusable foodware programs, and a special shout out goes to our GO GREEN Leadership Team who did an incredible job of putting together such a successful campaign. It is also with the support of the City of Toronto through it’s Waste Reduction Community Grants, along with our vendors, community corner guests, partners and YOU that we have succeeded in working towards our zero-waste goal.

We look forward to watching our efforts grow and hope you’ll join us as we endeavor to achieve zero-waste at JFM!
