Let's repackage our perspective on plastic.

To reach global environmental targets such as net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, plastic will continue to be part of the solution. After all, with responsible action and management, 60% of clean energy and consumer product needs can be met with recycled plastics.

When Canadians Save Plastic not only do we reduce landfill waste, we also show the world that when responsibly managed, plastic is a fundamental resource in a modern and sustainable future.

More than just a call for action,

it's a call

for meaningful change.

Extended Producer Responsibility

Canadian industry is leading the recycling charge, but we all have a role to play in our sustainable future. It’s about more than keeping plastic out of landfills and extending its lifecycle, it’s also about inspiring new generations of Canadian innovators and promoting accessibility, ensuring all Canadians have access to helpful recycling programs. Recycled and recovered plastics contribute to sustainable product designs and lessen our reliance on fossil fuels as feedstock. Better harmonization of recycling programs across provinces is one way to ensure our shared future.
