The Burnaby Board of Trade has struck a Single Use Plastic Waste Ban Task Force in order to help businesses better understand the challenges and opportunities of implementing the upcoming proposed ban by Metro Vancouver. As a part of the mandate of the Task Force the BBOT will be providing members with resources to help them reduce the distribution of single-use shopping bags and other single use plastic items.
Recycle BC and the Retail Council of Canada have worked together to provide a resource guide for businesses who want to reduce the distribution of single-use shopping bags.
Linked below is the guide and other resources for you to use. Retail stores can be the leaders in reducing single-use items and we hope these resources will support efforts.
