Vancouver Local Group #PlasticAttack 2.0

High fives and BIG thanks to our Greenpeace Vancouver Local Group volunteers who took action yesterday on plastic pollution! #PlasticAttack ...

Did you know that Canada generates 3.25 million tonnes of plastic waste and so much of the plastic packaging and waste we generate we get from our weekly visits to supermarkets?

It has gotten nearly impossible to avoid single-use plastic when shopping for food and other necessities. And sadly despite our best efforts to sort for recycling, only 10-12% of plastic waste is recycled in Canada.

>>> Time for Canadian supermarkets to get on board with reducing their role in the distribution of single-use plastics! Ask them to do more! https://act.greenpeace.org/page/36787/petition/1
