At Unsmoke, a big part of our goal revolves around community engagement and tangible action. We’re determined to play an active role in communities across Canada to take steps towards our goals. Explore some of our partnerships and initiatives throughout this page!
UNSMOKE CANADA CLEANUPS
Every year, we grant thousands of dollars to organizations across Canada to organize litter cleanup events. In 2021, we gave $75,000 in grants to 19 organizations. Take a look at the amazing cleanups that took place, and the impact that they had by scrolling through all the locations on the map.
Unsmoke Tree Planting Initiatives
UNSMOKE TREE PLANTING INITIATIVES
One way that we’re working on giving back to our communities is by planting trees all across Canada! We’ve got a goal to plant at least 10,000 trees by the year 2030, and our volunteers have been working every year to make it a reality. We’ve been focusing on revitalizing the environment around industrial areas, restoring land and beautifying city streets with our tree planting. Our volunteers have already planted over 1,000 trees across Montreal, Quebec City, and Markham, Ontario. You can discover more about our tree planting efforts across the country by hovering over the tree icons on the map!
WE'VE ALSO MADE SOME AMAZING PARTNERSHIPS IN AN EFFORT TO INNOVATE AND GET SUSTAINABLE. FOR EXAMPLE, OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH TERRACYCLE! ALONGSIDE THEM, WE'VE DEVELOPED:
UNSMOKE CIGARETTE BUTT RECYCLING PROGRAM (CIGARETTE BUTTS ONLY)
This program allows Canadians to recycle cigarette butts, getting more of the world’s most littered item out of our environment! You can read more about the national program here.
SMOKE-FREE RECYCLING PROGRAM (SMOKE-FREE PRODUCTS)
This program ensures that Canadians can recycle ALL types of vape pods, vape devices, and heated tobacco. It’s an important step towards a circular economy, where products and materials live a longer life instead of being wasted. You can read more about the program here.
THE WORLD IS CHANGING - IT’S TIME TO CHANGE WITH IT.
IT’S POSSIBLE TO RID CANADA OF CIGARETTES BY 2035, BUT ALL OF US WILL HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER TO GET THERE!
