ban plastic bags--LUSH Canada petition

As a concerned citizen I urge the Canadian government to support the campaign to ban plastic bags from grocery stores and other retailers and promote the use of durable reusable bags. Plastic bags are now consumed at an astounding rate of approximately 500 billion per year globally, or 1 million per minute. These plastic bags kill thousands of birds and marine wildlife every year, they litter our country, and their manufacture, transportation, and disposal release large amounts of carbon dioxide, contributing to global climate change. As a consumer I pledge to do my part by using a reusable bag whenever possible, but change must also come from within the government to tackle this growing environmental problem.

  • Natalie DeAngelis plastic bags are unnecessary. there is no "good" reason why we cannot use cloth, reusable and paper bags. we will manage just fine without plastic bags that retailors and grocery stores have been cramming down our throats and polluting our water with. Thanks but NO THANKS to plastic bags
