Canada announces impending ban on single-use plastics

Ban will mainly affect plastic bags, as well as cutlery or disposable tableware.

Canada’s initiative, announced by prime minister Justin Trudeau, follows similar action announced by the EU and New York. Trudeau is also targeting the agri-food industry in his plan, commenting: "A company of soft drinks, for example, will have to have a plan so that the recycling of these bottles it uses is done across the country."
