Canada has a plastic problem with an overreliance on single-use plastic.
3.3 million metric tons of plastic are disposed of in Canada each year.
50% of the plastic used in Canada is for single-use items.
Only 9% is recycled, with the remainder ending up in landfills or polluting land and waterways.
And plastic waste is projected to increase by thirty percent over the next decade.
NoSUP Canada aims to eliminate single-use plastic in Canada*.
*NoSUP recognizes that single-use plastic items are used by some groups of the Canadian population and will work to ensure any ban on SUP allows for exemptions for these groups.
