The problem

Plastic bags, bottles, cups, straws, stir sticks, wrappers, utensils are part of a long list of throwaway plastics that regularly pollute the environment in Canada and around the world. With a broken recycling system, a nasty habit of exporting and offloading our trash problems on countries in the Global South and landfills piling up with pointless plastic, we know we must immediately stop producing problematic and unnecessary plastics in the first place.

The solution

We need to stop producing all non-essential plastics, starting with the ones that regularly pollute, that end up as trash and that already have alternatives. We also must require corporations to take full responsibility for the lifecycle of their products and waste, and invest in innovative delivery systems that focus on reuse and refill systems.
