October marks Circular Economy Month in Canada and the Guelph Tool Library is teaming up with the City of Guelph and Reimagine Food to present a number of activities to promote the benefits of a circular economy. During October, we invite everyone in Guelph to learn about the circular economy, celebrate our individual and collective efforts, embrace circular solutions, and encourage others to take action. We will be holding a clothing swap, offering a free community meal, hosting a movie night, running a Repair Cafe, and much more! There will events for everyone to better understand the issues of waste and the opportunities they have to accelerate our transition to a circular economy. Please join us for some of these informative and fun events.
Some of our events require registration. Please view individual event links, or our calendar for more info!
