Recently, there has been a focus on reducing the amount of single use plastics. Single-use plastics are disposable plastics meant to be used once, and then tossed in the garbage. Several cities, including Devon, Alberta, have banned the use of plastic bags. As well, many companies, such as Sobey’s, have eliminated plastic bags at their checkouts, and others charge customers per bag. Other companies, such as Starbucks and A&W, have switched to paper or compostable straws to help cut down on plastic consumption. According to the Canadian government, we use 15 billion plastic bags per year as a country. Canada, as a whole, is aiming to ban single-use plastic, including bags, single-use water bottles, and cutlery, by the end of 2021.
