With little good news recently, this one comes as a ray of light. In as early as 2021, Canada will be banning single-use plastic in a bid to reduce environmental pollution.
Imagine: every single year, Canadians throw away around 3 million tons of plastic waste, only 9% of which ends up recycled. The majority of that plastic ends up in landfills, and a staggering 29,000 tons get into the natural environment, according to this report from the Government Of Canada.
But starting from the next year, you’ll no longer see any plastic checkout bags, straws, stir sticks, six-pack rings, cutlery, and hard-to-recycle food ware thrown around the country. Take notes, the rest of the world. This is a wonderful example for major countries to work on actions rather than words while tackling plastic pollution.
