Thousands of containers saved from the recycling

31 Dec 2020

Finally, 2020 is behind us!


An unsettling year, full of challenges and repositioning but also positive points. Our sense of community has grown, our empathy and caring has been expressed, our frantic pace has softened, it feels good.


At Vert Essentiel, the positive points are the community’s support for local businesses. By your desire to support local entrepreneurs, you contribute to the preservation of a part of our regional identity. I hope that this enthusiasm is here to stay.


By your concern for reusing your plastic containers, you have taken part in your eco-shop’s commitment to significantly reduce the amount of plastic waste ending up in the recycling bin.


You are committed, so are we.


More than ever, we want to also contribute to the well-being of the community.


We have therefore decided to donate part of your bulk purchasing efforts to an organization that shares the same values of recycling and contribution to the well-being of the community: Le Centre d’action bénévole l’Actuel.


For more than 35 years, L’Actuel has played a key role in helping people in difficulty, families, seniors, the chronically ill, convalescent or handicapped people and organizations in Vaudreuil-Soulanges. Espceially with the ongoing pandemic, it is necessary to help each other.


This is why we are proud to give back a part of our bulk sales to the amount of 0.01$ per reused container.


What is this magic number for 2020?


75,219 containers!


Compared to 51,858 containers in 2019, you have contributed to an increase of more than 45%!




In 2021, with your bulk fillings at Vert Essentiel, you are contributing now:


  • To the community by committing our financial support to l’Actuel,
  • To the protection of the environment through the reduction of plastic packaging and the use of environmentally friendly cleaning products,
  • To your health and your family’s health through the use of gentle and effective products,
  • To your wallet because bulk purchases are economical,
  • To the support of a local company of 8 employees.


For those of you who have not integrated this reuse habit, it’s time to get started. Save and rinse your next bottle of washing product and come see us. It will be our pleasure to advise you and give a second life to this container.


Thank you, 75 219 times, and may 2021 be a new beginning.
