Pledge to go zero waste and give up single-use plastics

Signify your commitment to reducing waste and supporting the oceans by signing our zero waste pledge

In Canada, nearly 90 per cent of plastics end up in landfills, incinerators, lakes, parks and oceans.

We can do better! Let’s reduce over consumption of plastic and improve management of recyclable residues.

A world without single-use plastic is possible.

I agree to adopt one or more of the proposed actions:

  1. REFUSE single-use plastic items.
  2. ASK for reusable cutlery and pass on plastic straws in restaurants.
  3. REPLACE single-use items with reusable items.
  4. GIVE UP non-recyclable, plastic, disposable items.
  5. OPT for items that contain recycled plastic if non-plastic isn’t available.
  6. PICK UP plastic debris.
  7. RECYCLE all plastic waste.
  8. APPLY 5Rs: refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and rot (compost).
  9. ASPIRE to a zero waste lifestyle.
  10. SUPPORT a federal ban on single-use plastics.
