Major supermarket chains like Loblaws, Sobeys, Costco
Remove single use plastics from supermarkets
Reduce and eventually reduce single-use plastics used for packaging food and other market items.
Why is this important?
Plastic is not biodegradable and even when we place it in the blue bin it does not guarantee it will be recycled. Mountains of plastic are in the oceans and in poorer countries that import our waste. Despite being the source of a huge amount of plastic waste, supermarkets like Loblaws and Sobeys have been slow to reduce their waste. They have the buying power to tell major brands to start using more sustainable packaging.
