Zero Plastic Waste
Towards a Zero Plastic Waste Economy
A zero plastic waste future requires working collaboratively across all sectors to accelerate circular solutions at a systems level to the plastics challenges we face.
Fortunately, businesses, government, and civil society leaders have been stepping up, alongside citizens, and are calling for fundamental change to keep plastics in the economy and out of the environment
As recently as October 7, 2020, the
Government of Canada announced next steps in its plan to achieve zero plastic waste by 2030.
Globally, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, through the
New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and Plastics Pact Network, has united over 1000 organizations behind a common vision for a circular economy for plastics, where plastic never becomes waste. The National Zero Waste Council is an Implementation Partner of the Canada Plastics Pact.
