“Coup de cœur” honourable mention for our children’s book, Leonard’s Composting Adventures

Québec Waste Reduction Week Municipal Challenge

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and members of City Council are proud to announce that our children’s book, Leonard’s Composting Adventures, has won the “Coup de cœur” honourable mention at the Québec Waste Reduction Week Municipal Challenge.

“Sustainable development is one of our key priorities and is part of our continuing efforts to raise awareness in our community about proper waste management. This is why we created this creative, original, and fun children’s book. Through its colourful images, it explains in a few words what composting is, why it is important, and how you can actively get involved,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

Leonard’s Composting Adventures charmed the three panelists, who are all waste management experts. The judges awarded the “Coup de cœur” honourable mention to this inspiring initiative that demonstrates Pointe-Claire’s commitment to sustainable development through the publication and launch of this children’s book.

Leonard’s Composting Adventures tells the story of a young boy and his cat as they learn how to compost and protect the planet. Their new friend, Mr. Compost, teaches them how to sort waste at source properly, how waste is turned into compost, and how composting has a positive impact on the environment. Mr. Compost takes Leonard and Kitty on a journey to a delightful, funny, and zany world full of sporty vegetables, dancing fruit, and smiling micro-organisms with a big appetite!

This book, created by the City, is an original idea by Ms. Emmanuelle Jobidon, Environment and Sustainable Development Coordinator.

Leonard’s Composting Adventures is available for loan at the Central Library and can be purchased at the multiservice counter at City Hall for $5.
