    What is Single Use Plastic?

    Single use plastic is petroleum-based packaging that is designed to be used once, and then discarded. It is primarily used for wrapping and packaging food, drinks and groceries, and includes plastic drink bottles, produce and shopping bags, cutlery, take-away food containers, cups, straws, plastic wrap, six pack rings, and more. Even paper coffee cups can be lined with plastic.

    Why Stop Using Single Use Plastic?

    • Many plastic items cannot be or are not recycled. Globally only 7 – 9% of plastics collected are recycled (https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2017/07/plastic-produced-recycling-waste-ocean-trash-debris-environment/) – the rest end up in our landfills or in our environment. As you know, commercial recycling pick-up in Sechelt has been suspended, making it difficult for customers and businesses to recycle at all.
    • It takes a significant amount of energy and resources to manufacture and ship single-use plastics, only to be used briefly and then discarded. This is an inefficient and expensive way to use scarce resources.
    • Small particles of plastics are now found throughout our earth, air, water, plants, animals and our own bodies! A whopping 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans each year, worldwide. By 2050, there will be more plastic by weight than fish in the sea!
    • Plastic takes only a couple seconds to throw out and approximately 400 years to biodegrade, with most of the plastic ever produced still exists in the environment.
    • Taking action on the unsustainable use of plastics helps to reduce climate change by lessening our reliance on petroleum by-products.
