Canada bans single-use plastic from 2021

Canada to ban single-use plastic by 2021 at the latest

Toronto. The Canadian government has announced that it will ban the most hazardous single-use plastic items by 2021 at the latest. In doing so, the government wants to counteract the three million tons of plastic waste that Canada consumes every year.

With this decision, Canada is joining the increasing bans on single-use plastic in many countries around the world. In the North American country, for example, 15 billion plastic bags and around 57 million plastic straws are used every year. Alarming statistics when you know that there are perfectly sensible alternatives in the form of reusable cotton bags and glass or stainless steel straws. What's more, only 10% of plastic waste in Canada is currently actually recycled.₁

Canada is taking a necessary step towards a more environmentally friendly future with its decision to ban single-use plastic.
