Government of Canada to take Regulatory and other action to reach a goal of Zero Plastic Waste
Plastic manufactured items that are discarded, disposed of, or abandoned in the environment outside of a waste management system (such as a recycling facility or a landfill) constitute plastic pollution. Current scientific evidence confirms that plastic pollution is ubiquitous in the environment, and that microplastic pollution poses an ecological hazard, including physical harm, to some animals and their habitat.
