Our Purpose

re:FILTER is seeking accessible solutions to plastic waste. Through strong community ties and do-it-yourself values, our team works to challenge existing infrastructure and innovate whenever possible - often taking the responsibility to make changes in our own lives first.

What We Do

We offer waste reduction presentations, art installations, and assist in a myco-remediation collaboration. Our members attend workshops, take part in zero-waste events and develop plastic free lifestyles. When re:FILTER was founded, we were hosting cigarette butt cleanups through our Vancouver park initiative: "The Butt Touchers".
