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 single-use 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.

Sign the zero waste pledge!
