Let's Create A Zero Waste Canada
We, the undersigned residents of Canada, draw the attention of the House to the following:
THAT excessive waste is causing severe environmental and ecological damage in Canada and landfills are costing municipalities over $3 billion a year;
THAT producers must take responsibility for the waste they generate and that the responsibility to reduce waste cannot fall solely on the consumer;
THAT only 11% of plastics are recycled in Canada and the use of non-recyclable or difficult to recycle packaging makes recycling more difficult for consumers and recycling groups;
THAT Canada led the creation of the G7 Ocean Plastics Charter committing to 100% reusable, recyclable or recoverable plastics by 2030, but we currently lack federal legislation in support of this waste reduction target;
THAT real action is needed now to move towards a zero waste Canada;
THEREFORE all parties should support the Zero Waste Packaging Act.
