What are some everyday things you can do to promote sustainability?


Sports equipment needs to be refreshed often and that means some spending from the family budget. Kids grow fast! Here are some tips to save money and avoid wasting resources. These are concrete things you can do to involve your child and help boost their awareness of sustainable development.


Before the current winter season ends , take advantage of sporting events to: 

  • Discuss your needs with other families and plan some trades.
  • Take advantage of the team or association email to advertise any equipment you may be offering.
  • Set up a garage sale for the entire team. It could also raise money for an end-of-season outing.
  • Set up a solidarity platform to sell used equipment.
  • Make classified ads to put up on the bulletin board at your sports centre or gym.


You can also:

  • Take advantage of end-of-season sales and store clearances.
  • Visit shops like Poubelle du Ski that sell second-hand items for various sports.
  • Check out your local thrift stores.
  • Buy, sell or trade used items in sports stores; many offer this possibility.


These initiatives will help you save money, extend the life of items and—who knows—maybe even let you try out a new sport next year.
