This marks week two of our customer of the week features!
Dawn Redskye is the second customer we’d like to highlight – a local artist & musician. Being Anishinaabe, she has learned a lot about land protection and how living in a high-waste society is detrimental to the natural resources that sustain us. Because of this, Dawn has taken on an eco-conscious lifestyle and hopes to teach her daughter, Quinn, the best practices.
We will spend the next few weeks sharing tips and tricks on how to reduce plastic in your home and your life. Read on for some tips for going into plastic free July...
Environmental racism refers to the disproportionate impact that waste, pollution, and the climate crisis have on black people, Indigenous people, and other people of colour.
This happens when governments and corporations expose minority and low-income communities to known hazards such as: contaminated water, carcinogens, and other harmful pollutants through building of oil pipelines, toxic waste dumps, and polluting factories at a much higher rate than white, affluent communities all while avoiding to put environmental rules and regulations in place to protect minority communities.
While the term “environmental racism” may be unfamiliar for Canadians, experiences in communities across the country prove that it is a very real and still ongoing issue.
Black Lives Matter.
Systemic racism is worldwide.

Reimagine Co has been and always will be open about where we stand on political issues. Silence at a time like this only shows complacency and complicity with violence.
However, following careful consideration, we have decided to remain online-only throughout June. This means that both our 211 King St location and our Western Fair District Market location will remain closed and will not reopen until July at the earliest.
