Green City Living Co. eco home eco-friendly environment plastic free zero waste

In 2020, the Canadian government announced a plan to ban single-use plastics such as plastic grocery bags and plastic straws by 2030.

Plastic has been polluting our earths rivers, oceans, and lakes while harming wildlife and leaving micro-plastics in the water we use and drink today!

A statistic from Statistics Canada shows that Canadians throw away 3 million tonnes of plastic waste each year and only 9% is recycled, meaning that majority of plastics end up in our land fills.

We have created a list of amazing alternatives for single-use plastics that pollute our planet.

To prepare for the ban on plastics, start switching to reusable products as you run out of your single-use, plastic products.
