THE PROBLEM

Less than 9 per cent of Canada’s plastic waste gets recycled. The rest ends up landfills, incinerators, and the environment where it destroys ecosystems, leaches toxic chemicals, and harms wildlife.

The Solution

We’re asking the federal government to create a national plastics directive that achieves a plastic-free environment by 2025. It should ban plastics that are toxic or hard to recycle, stop plastic producers from making single-use plastics from virgin petrochemicals, and make companies responsible for cleaning up their own plastic mess.
