We're a registered non-profit with a dedicated team of young artists, and community activists, committed to helping promote a positive and simple change in how we manage our relationship with the environment.

Notre mission est de combler le fossé entre l'environnementalisme et la culture populaire.

We're a youth-built, community-ran organization based in the Montreal-West-Island area. We all strive to make a difference through actions, rather than just words.

We host bi-weekly community clean-up events where anyone is free to participate in an afternoon of picking up trash and partaking in art events. Event Details can be found on our Facebook page.

Notre croyance en la psychologie positive a contribué à changer notre relation avec les déchets et l'environnement. En organisant des événements de nettoyage, en produisant des œuvres d'art et en créant des campagnes sur les réseaux sociaux nous sensibilisons à la simplicité de l'aide à l'environnement.

En travaillant avec des artistes locaux, nous sommes en mesure de transformer les déchets que nous collectons en œuvres d'art significatives. Notre œuvre d'art est faite de matériaux 100% recyclés, fournissant un exemple visuel de ce qui peut être réalisé lorsque l'on se consacre à l'action positive.

Every dollar you donate translates into another pound of trash removed from our streets. It's with the donations from our patrons that we can continue to make an impact in our community.

Étant donné que nos événements de nettoyage impliquent souvent de passer du temps à l'extérieur tout en enlevant les ordures, nous encourageons tous nos bénévoles à porter des vêtements appropriés. Des sacs à ordures et des gants sont fournis. De plus, vous êtes libre d'apporter votre propre équipement.

Un événement de nettoyage dure généralement entre 4 et 6 heures. Les volontaires sont libres de venir à tout moment et de rester aussi longtemps qu'ils le souhaitent.

Les bénévoles sont encouragés à faire du covoiturage pour ces événements. Nous offrirons également un système de navette qui ramassera les gens à des endroits déterminés sur le chemin des événements de nettoyage.


Thank you.

Your donation will help TrashTalk further its mission towards a more sustainable future.
