Eco Gift Wrapping

Every year hundreds of volunteers help us educate the public about reducing holiday waste by providing eco-gift wrapping services for countless customers at various retail locations. All wrapping materials are either re-purposed or recycled and are in turn recyclable which means we create no waste!!

“The initiative has helped us better serve our clientele in a sustainable manner.”  Outreach Coordinator – MEC Toronto

Volunteer Call

All details regarding locations and volunteer opportunities will be posted in the fall months preceding December. Training sessions will also be held in the fall.

This is a fun and rewarding volunteer experience that’s perfect for students, seniors, newcomers, international students, employee groups and YOU!

Thank you!

We would like to thank the staff of Mountain Equipment Co-op for hosting and supporting this initiative. We would also like to express our sincere appreciation for the hundreds of volunteers who help us provide this eco-friendly service to the public who in turn through their participation support our work and make the holiday season a bit greener for all.

If you would like to provide TGC’s unique Eco-Gift-Wrapping service at one of your retail locations, please contact us before October 1st.
