Breaking the Plastic Cycle: A Policy Roadmap to Eliminate One-Third of Canada’s Plastic Packaging Waste

Back to Resource Library

Today, Canada produces nearly 2.4 million tonnes of plastic packaging waste each year. And that number keeps growing dramatically. Typically, this plastic is used just once, sometimes for minutes. But it lasts for centuries in the environment, where it harms oceans, ecosystems and life itself.

Oceana Canada’s roadmap provides an evidence-based guide to eliminating one-third of our country’s plastic packaging. By implementing the recommended interventions, Canada can prevent the generation of nearly nine million tonnes of single-use plastic by 2040.
