Eco-responsibility of products sold by Carrousel: a constantly evolving priority

We are very proud to have launched our Engagement 500 Plus in 2019. In just a few years, this program has allowed us to add hundreds of eco-responsible products to our selection in addition to raising awareness and informing our customers about products that could limit their impact on the environment.

Since then, several other initiatives have been launched, including our Carrou-cycle stretch film recycling program and the introduction of a new line of equipment, dishwashers, which encourage the transition to reusable dinnerware.

At Carrousel, preserving the planet's resources is important to us and we are determined to be a key player in the development of sustainable and eco-responsible solutions in the Canadian packaging industry. Stay tuned for our next developments!


The Eco-innov Centre

Logo Centre Eco-innovAs a key player in their industry’s transformation, Emballages Carousel has created the Eco-Innov Centre (EIC): a collaborative space to promote the eco-friendly practices of their customers, partners and suppliers. A place for sharing and exchanging ideas, expanding knowledge, encouraging best practices and promoting healthy solutions, inspired by circular economy strategies. Last but not least, the EIC is intended as a place for considering the social and environmental impacts of our daily activities... For fair and better packaging.

Guide to single-use plastic items allowed and prohibited

Montreal and the Government of Canada have adopted regulations prohibiting the sale and offer of some single-use plastic products.

To help you find your way around, Carrousel has produced a guide summarizing the targeted items.


In addition, in order to easily identify on our website the single-use plastic products that are or will be banned or restricted at the federal level or in Montreal, you will find two new labels on the picture of the affected products:


Means that a product is or will be banned at the federal level. It may also be banned in Montreal.


Means that the use of this product is or will be restricted according to certain criteria or uses and/or that it is or will be banned only in Montreal.

More explanations can be found in the detailed article page.


Are you located in a city other than Montreal that has adopted a bylaw on single-use plastics? Carrousel has compiled a list of banned items and environmentally responsible alternatives for each of these municipalities. Contact us for more information!

To encourage the transition to a sustainable solution and the use of reusable dishware, Carrousel has been offering a new line of equipment, dishwashers, since 2020. This initiative takes the form of a complete kitchen hygiene program that includes the sale, rental and maintenance of reusable dishwashers and glasswashers.



Carrou-cycle program

The program that gives a second life to stretch film!  

Each year, millions pounds of stretch film are used by many companies in Quebec. This material, most of which is currently sent to landfill sites, is a real environmental problem. As the largest distributor of packaging products in Quebec, Carrousel is very proud to have developed an innovative and eco-responsible solution that will help reduce the amount of residual material created by this packaging.

Carrousel has therefore joined forces with its longtime business partner, Polykar, a plastic bag manufacturer, to launch its brand-new recycling program for stretch film, Carrou-cycle.

This program, which implements the concept of the circular economy, will enable companies to meet their environmental commitments and transform used stretch film into new plastic products.

Help protect the planet every day

Products tailored to customer needs
Emballages Carrousel is committed to continually expanding our line of eco-responsible products and we're pleased to support hundreds of companies as they make the green transition.

We're proud to be the largest independent packaging distributor in Canada, offering many eco-responsible packaging solutions that consumers can find in their favourite stores, including containers, utensils, bowls, bags, boxes and more.

Shared responsibility
As an individual, you can also do your part for the environment. Choose to make purchases at food service establishments such as restaurants, caterers, butchers, bakers, convenience stores and grocery stores that use Carrousel products. Be proactive and ask if their products comply with future government and municipal regulations banning single-use plastics. For example, Montréal's new law will go into effect on March 28, 2023.

Find out whether protecting the environment is one of their company values and look at what concrete actions they're taking every day.

Together, suppliers, retailers and consumers can have a positive impact on the planet.
