Thanks for commending Ministers Duclos and Guilbeault on their important announcement of the ban on the first six single-use plastic products. It’s only a beginning but their removal of the export loophole means they’re listening to you and me and the public and not just the BIG PLASTIC industry.

Here are some other products that merit consideration for a ban. Please let us know what you think should be banned next. We’d especially like to hear about what you’re doing to replace plastic in your kitchen. Can you tell us how you managed before using the plastic products? We’d love to have a before and after story from you (with pictures if you can).  You can email your comments to

Hot & cold beverage cups 🥤
Sachets (eg. single-serve soya sauce)
Stand-up pouches
Produce bags 🥦
Shrink wrap


All the best,
from Bea and the team at Friends of the Earth Canada
