Reducing Plastic Pollution – Liberal Action
Reducing Plastic Pollution

Reducing Plastic Pollution

We have reached a defining moment, and if we do not act now, plastics could outweigh fish in our oceans by 2050.

Our Liberal government has stepped up as part of global efforts to reduce plastic pollution. We adopted the Oceans Plastics Charter in 2018, are investing $100 million to address plastic waste in developing countries, and banned products with plastic microbeads to protect Canadian freshwater and marine ecosystems.

Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives still have no plan to fight climate change or protect the environment. Canadians expect and deserve better.

Add your name now to support the Liberal government’s efforts to cut plastic pollution, and to protect a cleaner, healthier environment for future generations.
