How exactly would a plastic bag ban help the environment?


Ultimately, we need to move away from being a disposable society, and focus on conserving resources for current, and future generations. We can’t keep up with this level of waste, simply for convenience.

Plastic is made from oil, a non renewable resource, and requires significant energy to be processed, and ultimately recycled or disposed. Plastic bags also pollute the environment - blowing around in parks and getting stuck in trees, floating in Toronto’s ravines and on the beach - and ultimately harm wildlife!
