Canada to ban single-use plastics as early as 2021
TORONTO -- Canada will ban single-use plastics as early as 2021, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday. Trudeau said the specific items to be banned will be determined based on a science-based review, but the government is considering items such as water bottles, plastic bags and straws. "As early as 2021, Canada will ban harmful single-use plastics from coast to coast," Trudeau said.
