Cultivating health

Produce 960 km of pink agricultural drains: a creative awareness campaign unique in Quebec for the benefit of the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation.

The campaign was held mainly in October 2018, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This initiative represents an investment in time and development, but we know that each pink drain sold will be the result of a work and a collective commitment to fight against the disease.

Donations raised for the cause: $ 45,000
