Öko Créations

Marie-Noël and Mélanie Beetz, sisters with strong ecological and humanitarian values, are the heart of the Öko Creations family business founded in 2009.  They draw inspiration from their unique experiences in textile design, health sciences, world travel, a stint at Cirque du Soleil—not to mention motherhood—and a childhood steeped in the smells of fabrics and the whir of sewing machines. Öko is the culmination of these shared life experiences.

In 2018, their cousin Karine Létourneau joined them as a co-owner, armed with her artistic project management experience at Ubisoft and her passion for the environment and feminism.

Today, the three women at the helm of this family-owned business are proud to employ more than 18 people and to distribute their products to more than 200 retailers in Canada. They are committed to helping consumers shop smart and shop sustainable.

OUR BULK PRODUCTS

Most of our products are in bulk. You may thus purchase only however much you want. Less waste, less useless packaging for the landfill or recycling, and more savings. You will soon discover that packaging is quite expensive! And for what? Only to throw it away!

QUALITY PRODUCTS

Here you will find lots of everyday-products. From nuts and dried fruit, to fresh fruits & vegetables, as well as laundry detergents, body products, oils, vinegars… simply put, a visit is worth a thousand words!

All products are selected with care and, above all, with respect to Zero Waste. Certain suppliers have changed their packaging methods to conform to the Zero Waste model.
As it is currently quite difficult to achieve 100% Zero Waste, it is important to keep in mind that things are just beginning to change and that with perseverance and good relations with our suppliers, we shall come ever closer to achieving what we believe to be the best for everyone.

The more the time passes, the larger the quantity of Zero Waste products offered will become..

About Avrac A’davrac

Avrac A'davrac is a Zero Waste Grocery. But what does Zero Waste mean exactly?

WHO ARE WE?

We human beings are big creators and producers of all sorts of waste. Furthermore, we produce waste that doesn’t reintegrate into the ecosystem. To reduce our impact on the environment, we must make a better effort to REUSE or RECYCLE what we use. This however is no easy task for a society that, for social and economic reasons, is prone to overconsumption. That’s why everyone has a part in reestablishing balance. We have produced too much waste throughout the decades. It is now time to find a solution. And it’s you who have this solution.

By adopting Zero Waste, you halt (or at least reduce) your contribution to the production of tonnes of plastic packaging. And packaging already in existence must be given a second, third… life before being thrown out. The tide is only beginning to turn so we must become more and more numerous for it to turn faster. The result will certainly not be seen overnight because it is a long process.

We are sure you will like this new way to shop just as much as we enjoyed it our first time.

I AM ZERO WASTE

francois_vrac.jpg

François Vincent OWNER

I have been a diver since I was thirteen years old. I have dived in just about every sea on Earth. The enchanting settings that I visited in my youth have become real trash-cans. For three years, I took part in archaeological excavations in the Rhone river which empties into the Mediterranean Sea. I saw plastic bags and bottles floating by me in the current and heading straight toward the sea. Imagine in a river like the St. Lawrence, with a much more imposing size and flow than has the Rhone, all the tonnes of garbage being carried to the ocean! I also had a short five-year career fishing on trawlers. You could but imagine the tonnes plastic garbage that I brought back to port to take to an eco-centre so that it would not find its way back to sea!

It is for these reasons that I have created Avrac A'davrac, so that we contribute to solving this global problem together. Let us change our consumption habits and make our children proud!
