Canada will ban 'harmful' single-use plastics

Canada will ban 'harmful' single-use plastics

Canada will ban single-use plastics from 2021. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced it and declaring it a "global challenge" to phase out the plastic bags, straws and cutlery clogging the world's oceans.

Less than 10% of plastics used in Canada are currently recycled. Each year a million birds and more than 100,000 marine mammals worldwide suffer injury or death by becoming entangled in plastic or ingesting it through the food chain, with single-use items representing some 70% of the plastic waste littering the marine environment.
