Our eco-responsible commitments
We also have a few words to share with you about our eco-responsible commitments.
The societal and environmental issues facing society are enormous, we are convinced that art must be an essential part of a socio-ecological transition.
Thus, Le Monastère has already put in place many eco-responsible actions such as offering exclusively Quebec alcohol products at the bar and a free water service, all in reusable glasses that we keep on site. A waste sorting station is also available, while trying to reduce waste production.
An internal eco-responsible committee and support from the CQEER allow us to give an impulse to our approach and to aspire to do better.
