Canada is moving rapidly to eliminating some single-use plastics from our stores and restaurants.
Ealier this month, Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault announced that Canada will ban the import or production of plastic bags and Styrofoam takeout containers by the end of 2022, their sale by the end of 2023, and their export by the end of 2025.
Also covered under the ban are most plastic straws, cutlery, stir sticks, and plastic six-pack rings.
It will mean cloth or re-usable plastic bags will have to be used at grocery stores and shops across the country.
Do you agree with the legislation?
