As we polish up the last pieces of our website, we're ready to roll out the Ban the Bag YYC campaign with the support of Calgarians!
We've been encouraged by the new bag bans coming into effect in Canada, including Victoria's upcoming ban and Montreal's 2018 ban. We're feeling the support from fellow Calgarians, waste-conscious citizens and environmentally conscious organizations. It's Calgary's turn to show Canada that we're serious about waste reduction goals and our environmental impact. Plastic bans are a small and do-able step forward inspiring and influencing a more dynamic and socially minded city that cares about the environment, locally and globally.
As the campaign grows, we're looking forward to hearing from Calgarians and highlighting local businesses and champions of waste reduction. There are so many places already eschewing plastic and encouraging responsible consumerism - looking forward to showing off some these great organizations!
