Canada To Ban Single-Use Plastics!

The federal government estimates that about a third of all plastic used in Canada is for single-use or short-term products such as straws and packaging, and that Canadians use some 15 billion plastic bags a year and 57 million plastic straws a day.

At any rate, single-use plastics will destroy humanity if they're not banned immediately in Canada (and California probably).

In March, the European Parliament agreed that by 2021 the European Union will ban nearly a dozen single-use products including plastic plates, cutlery, cups, straws, plastic sticks in cotton swabs, balloon sticks and stir sticks, and Styrofoam cups and take-out food containers.

"Canadians know first hand the impacts of plastic pollution, and are exhausted of seeing their beaches, parks, streets, and shorelines littered with plastic waste", Trudeau said. According to Mr Trudeau, many other countries are trying to combat plastic pollution and Canada will be one of them.

"We believe if you couple that growth with the proper collection, repurpose, reuse of plastics, it's going to continue to make the products more in demand". The educational campaign zoned in on promoting cheaper, cleaner water and better for the environment.

Paper straws take about two to six weeks to disintegrated, down from the 500 years it takes for plastic straws to decompose.

"Taking these steps will help create tens of thousands of middle-class jobs and make our economy even stronger-while protecting fish, whales, and other wildlife, and preserving the places we love".

Zuppa said that the recycling industry is undergoing and complex and transitional period with lots of change anticipated in the future.

Authorities said they located the 15-year-old mother near the scene and transported her to a hospital for treatment. Cooper was unable to get into the dumpster so he called on-site manager John Pedebone.

Conservative candidate Sarah Fischer posted a video of herself attempting to drink water from a box.

Environmentalists say it can take up to 1,000 years for plastic grocery bags to decay.

The Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) and the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) released a joint statement that was measured in tone, noting they share the federal government's concerns about mismanagement of plastic waste.

She said her organization wants to be involved in the process to ensure bans are imposed only where there are "viable, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable alternatives".

Lindsay now serves as president and CEO of the Council of Ontario Universities.

He was also a former deputy minister for several Ontario ministries, including natural resources and northern development, mines and forestry.

The announcement was not specific as to what items would be included in this ban, leaving the decision for a later time, after some sort of scientific panel or commission reports on what are the most harmful products that should be banned.
