Views: 15     Author: Site Editor     Publish Time: 2022-11-15      Origin: Site

On June 22, 2022, Canada issued SOR/2022-138 "Single-use Plastics Prohibition Regulations", which prohibits the production, import and sale of 7 single-use plastic products in Canada. With some special exceptions, the manufacture and import of these products are prohibited. The single-use plastic prohibition regulations will take effect in December 2022. The goal is to achieve "zero plastic into landfills, beaches, rivers, wetlands, forests" by 2030, and let plastic disappear in nature.
