Should Single-use Plastics Be Banned In Canada?

A poll done by Nanos Research earlier this month shows that over half of Canadians support a total ban on single-use plastics, such as cutlery straws and bags.

This poll came after the announcement by Prime Minister Trudeau that Canada would move to ban single-use plastics by 2021, a decision that will hopefully rectify our current consumption, waste problem, and effects on the environment/animals that dwell within such as sea turtles.

For hungry sea turtles, it&apos;s nearly impossible to distinguish between jellyfish and floating plastic shopping bags.

8 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean each year killing millions of marine animals.

Is using single-use plastic worth the harmful effects to our planet?
