Let's repackage our perspective on plastic.

To reach global environmental targets such as net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, plastic will continue to be part of the solution. After all, with responsible action and management, 60% of clean energy and consumer product needs can be met with recycled plastics.

When Canadians Save Plastic not only do we reduce landfill waste, we also show the world that when responsibly managed, plastic is a fundamental resource in a modern and sustainable future.

More than just a call for action,

it's a call
