Canadians say goodbye to plastic straws, cutlery and checkout bags

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (Canada) (AFP) – Restaurants and cafes in Canada are no longer permitted to offer plastic straws, food containers, checkout bags, or cutlery to customers as of Wednesday. Despite a court ruling it as unconstitutional, the regulation banning single-use plastics was introduced last year and was to be phased in as part of Ottawa’s commitment to achieve zero plastic waste by 2030.
