New year, big news at Pro-Terre Zero-Waste store & grocery
Discover our new projects for 2021
New year means new projects and new resolutions... Well, on our side, our resolution has remained the same: to accompany people towards an eco-friendlier lifestyle while adopting zero-waste habits. That being said, our mission may have remained the same, but we have prepared several new projects that we were very eager to tell you about! It's been almost 3 months since the Pro-Terre Zero Waste Grocery Boutique opened and we are very proud of your enthusiasm and curiosity to learn more about how we can, all together, make a difference for our beautiful planet. It's a little thanks to this curiosity and desire to exchange on the subject that we were inspired to offer you a space that brings people together. So, curious to learn more about what's new at Pro-Terre? Read on to find out more!
Bring your own reusable mug and come discover our new coffee counter!
Starting this spring, come and pick up a good Montreal Barista Coffee at our eco-responsible boutique located in Terrebonne! We offer three varieties to satisfy all coffee lovers, including decaffeinated Espresso, Cremona Espresso or Bio1. Café Barista is a Quebec micro roaster specializing in Italian espresso. It is our pleasure to offer you the delicious coffee from this local company to give you a little pick-me-up throughout the day! You can also purchase their coffee in bulk to enjoy at home. The coffee counter is currently working on a "bring your own" formula, so we invite you to bring your reusable cup to come and get a good American coffee, a latte or a cappuccino... the choice is yours! If you are not a coffee lover, we also offer tea, herbal teas, and hot chocolate. There will also be several pastries to accompany your beverage such as croissants and chocolates. Whenever possible, we will be able to welcome you on site to share a good coffee with you! The idea behind the new coffee counter is to create a safe space for sharing information and exchanging experiences between all of us. It's a place to discuss tips and tricks to facilitate the transition to a zero-waste lifestyle, you will also be able to exchange on your favorite ecological products! Moreover, when the situation allows it, we will invite you to coffee meetings in the form of guided discussions and during which we will sometimes even invite guests who will come to give mini conferences. We felt it was important to create a space where you could exchange ideas and accompany you in your desire to live a more eco-responsible life daily. Also, we would very much like to put at your disposal a small terrace with a few bistro tables for the summer of 2021. Stay tuned!
