Reduce waste

Canada produces among the most garbage per person of any country in the world. That’s definitely not a category we want to be a leader in. Bridget and the Green Party believe strongly in pursuing a zero-waste future. It would involve a wholesale change in our thinking, but it’s essential. And we need to start now. We need to provide incentives for businesses and individuals to reduce waste throughout the supply chain. We need to look to countries, such as Germany, that require manufacturers to accept lifetime stewardship of all products, including packaging. Zero waste is a big challenge, but we have a big vision, and a firm belief that it’s possible.
