Take Action

Save money and the planet by taking plastic-free lunches

Friends of the Earth’s 11-year old Plastics Campaigner, Maya, is calling on students, parents, and teachers to join her in getting rid of single use plastics in school lunches. Maya has calculated that could avoid pollution by 4,656 pieces of single-use plastic over the school year. At the same time, it could save their families money on their grocery bills – as much as $716 over the school year. Friends of the Earth’s Plastic-Free Lunch Campaign will kick-off in October 2023, and we’re inviting schools, classrooms, and Eco-Clubs  across Canada to join and participate in the campaign by taking action with their school community during October 2023 and/or February 2024.

Join Maya’s Plastic Pollution Campaign to ban plastic PLU stickers in Canada

Ten year-old Maya and Friends of the Earth launched Maya’s Plastic Pollution Campaign. Its goal was to raise awareness of plastic price look-up stickers (PLUs) on fruits and vegetables and the ways in which they can harm our environment, and to call on the federal government to include these stickers under an expansion of the country’s single-use plastics ban. #ExpandTheBan.

Tell CPP Investments it’s time to take climate action
