It’s an important word. For newcomers to Canada, it means long-term fiscal independence; and for the environment, it means a society living within its means.
Either way, sustainability translates into hope for the future. And at EcoEquitable, that is our sole mission.

For the past ten years, we’ve provided employment and skills training for new immigrant women and underemployed, while diverting harmful waste from our landfills.
And with your help, we will continue for another ten years: recycling fabric and changing lives.

About Us

Founded in 2002, EcoEquitable Inc. is a registered Canadian charity, providing temporary employment and
skills development training through small-scale textile recycling.
