Packaging Petition

Companies that sell products have a choice about the type and amount of packaging they use on their products.

Many states and countries are creating rules that make these companies responsible for their products and packaging, even after they leave the store. This gives companies a reason to use less packaging and to ensure that it's recyclable. In Ontario, we've made a start, but companies need to do more.


Dear The Packaging Association of Canada (PAC), 

As the organization that calls itself "the voice of the Canadian packaging industry since 1950," your members are mostly responsible for the products and packaging that end up in municipal waste systems.

We urge your member companies to take responsibility for the packaging waste they create. That's why I am requesting your member companies to:

a. stop using non-recyclable materials to make packaging.
 
b. pay back municipalities for the full costs of dealing with packaging once it ends up in the waste or recycling stream.

Sincerely,

    Toronto needs to figure out how to recycle black plastic or we need to halt the use of it.

    What is especially annoying is vegetables being packaged im black plastic containers which are not recyclable. Also, the “crinkley” plastic bags- not recyclable. Alternatives exist and I want them now.

    I support sustainable packaging such as glass and cardboard that is reusable and recyclable. New plastic production should be highly taxed to encourage plastic recycling and single use plastic should be banned.

    Black plastic… ugh. Can’t be recycled, but my favourite sushi and take-out restaurants use them. Wishing they would use something else.

    Reducing waste is absolutely necessary and its not that hard—bar shampoo, bar deodorant, laundry strips, shop at bulk stores, etc. Over packaging would stop in a heartbeat if people began to refuse it!

    OF COURSE,in future provincial elections (and/or by-elections) one should & must vote for a candidate that definitely will introduce correct/workable legislation to reduce (if not eliminate) unnecessary packaging etc….
