Plastic is polluting rivers, lakes, seas. That’s why the government of Canada will be ban single-use plastic from next year. This information has been informed in a report of Good News Network.
Every year, Canadians dump about 3 million tons of plastic waste. Of this, only 9 percent can be refined. That is most of the plastic falls into the ground. Now, Plastic is everywhere. It’s doing damage to wildlife. Tiny plastic particles (microplastics) are spreading in our drinking water.
On October 6, Canada’s Minister for Environment and Climate Change Jonathan Wilkinson announced that the government’s next goal is to reduce plastic waste to zero by 2030. The plan will protect wildlife and water. This will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase employment.
An important part of this plan is to ban the use of disposable plastic products. Plastic bags, straw, household goods are now integrated into the environment. These products are mostly recycled. Alternatives to these products are also available.
