Plastic free Toronto
The Toronto Area Sustainable Neighbourhood Group are driving the change towards a Plastic Free Toronto. Over a number of years, we have been working with businesses and households to phase out single use plastic items such as plastic bags, and now coffee cups, cutlery, cups and straws.
This Lakes Mail article showcases the progress made so far to phase out single use plastic products in the Toronto town centre.
"There are only a handful of cafes and shops in Toronto that are still handing out single-use plastic products, and many of these are phasing out their back stock as they move to a more responsible product," Mr Dewar said.
