about time. The planet is starting to suffocate in plastic refuse.
I know this must be devastating for the white nattys
Imagine something that Canadians want being done!
Canadians overwhelmingly support action to reduce plastic waste.
The only ones who do not are - surprise surprise - the ones who don't believe in climate change.
And nobody cares what they think.
I'm a proponent of banning rather than some extra dumb plastic tax. Legislation beats taxation.
There is no one action that is going to eliminate this problem. A ban on certain plastics is one thing that can be tried in order to help out.
More stupidity from trudOWE. SIngle use plastics would include water bottles, pill bottles and most packaging including wrapping for meat at the grocery store.
If there were a nickle deposit on a bag you'd never see one in a landfill ever again.
I remember when re-using things, and repairing rather than replacing, and suchlike frugal habits were a conservative value.
They still are in some pockets of our country, Tec. When you live in a very rural area it pays to re-use and repair rather than a lengthy trip to town. Trouble is so many items these days are not built to last and cannot be repaired at home except by someone with the technical or engineering capability.
Would you trade one in to get your nickel refund, then get a second hand one with a new nickel deposit? Or throw them out and have people scrounge through garbage bins to bring them to the plastic bag refund center? Sounds a little cumbersome.
