Plastic Bags

Plastic shopping bags…use them wisely, for everything they’re worth.

Plastic shopping bags are one of the most efficient and innovative means to transport items from store to home. Convenient, strong but lightweight, reusable and inexpensive – it’s no wonder that plastic shopping bags are the preferred choice of consumers.

Introduced 40 years ago, plastic shopping bags revolutionized how people shop for food and essentials. It is hard to think of a world without them.

The Canadian plastics industry has had a decades-long commitment to product stewardship and environmental responsibility to ensure the wise use and recycling of plastic shopping bags.
