Every year, dozens of banners from the University of Ottawa are disposed of because a program has come to an end or an event is over. Working with EcoEquitable, a local women’s cooperative specializing in creating sustainable merchandise, the Office of Campus Sustainability was able to recover these old banners and have them transformed into sturdy reusable bags.
Each bag is unique, displaying images from campus events such as Poutine Fest, Francophonie Week, and the Defy the Conventional campaign. Every bag is ethically made in Ottawa, is environmentally thoughtful, and is woman powered.
If you are interested in getting a bag for yourself or a colleague, the retail for $15 and can be purchased at the Office of Campus Sustainability (141 Louis Pasteur, room 180).
