HALIFAX —
With the price of plastic shopping bags prevailing around the world rising, the largest cities in Atlantic Canada are seeking to join more and more cities and countries to ban, restrict or tax single --
Use plastic bags.
Halifax Parliament has asked city workers to review the ban on plastic bags on Tuesday, a move that will follow Montreal\'s leadership in Montreal, a single person
Plastic bags were banned at the beginning of the year, and Victoria was also banned from plastic bags, which came into effect on July 1.
Mayor Mike Savage will also write to the prime minister of Nova Scotia calling for the establishment of a province
Widespread ban on plastic bags
It is often called the \"Sobeys package\" in Maritimes, regardless of their source.
However, the city did not wait for action from the province, and Halifax solid waste manager Matthew Kelly promised to report to Parliament within a year.
Mark Butler of the Halifax eco-action center says plastic bags will take centuries to break down, destroy the environment, drown the world\'s oceans, and also appear in seafood.
\"They are blocking our oceans and can do harm to marine wildlife,\" said Butler, policy director at the environmental advocacy group . \".
\"We found tiny plastic particles in the beach and seafood.
\"This issue has prompted countries, including France, Italy and China, to impose restrictions, taxes and direct bans.
During the long debate on Tuesday, members of Halifax expressed their supportor banning —single-
Use plastic bags.
Richard Zurawski told the council that future generations have a \"moral obligation\" to stop the use of plastic bags, noting that plastics are produced using fossil fuels and contribute to carbon emissions and climate change.
\"The use of plastic has tripled over the past decade.
\"We have to stop the plastic tide,\" said a member of parliament in a suburb west of the city center.
\"It\'s a climate apocalypse and we\'re staring at its face and we have a chance to make a difference on this plastic issue.
I don\'t want to see us miss this opportunity.
However, some members expressed concern about the rush to impose a ban and questioned how residents would deal with items such as pet litter and recyclable paper, which must be separated from other recycles in Halifax, put in a plastic bag, just like a grocery bag.
Nevertheless, it seems that the Halifax MP is ready to address these issues, suggesting that the city could, like other cities, introduce black bins for recycled blue bins and garbage instead of plastic bags.
Atlantic Canada\'s largest city survey may ban the decision of plastic bags not just altruistic behavior in environmental management.
Like many cities around the world, Halifax suddenly finds its own so-
In last July, China announced that it would ban the import of plastic waste by the end of this year, known as film plastics.
A law prohibits the city from dumping plastics in landfill sites
And recycling facilities that do not handle film plastics, including shopping bags, cereal box liners, and packaging around water bottles or juices
The municipalities soon found themselves growing in plastic piles.
Earlier this month, the provincial environmental authorities stepped in and granted the city a temporary exemption to allow the city to dump plastics in landfill sites.
But the crisis prompted the committee to review its options, including the cancellation or reduction of plastic shopping bags.
Jim colmere, Atlantic Canada director of the Canadian Retail Council, said that the top choice for most retailers is for the government to allow stores to develop their own plans to reduce plastic bags.
\"The profit margin is very low and the competition is fierce, so customer service is king,\" Cormier said . \" Retailers, he explained
While achieving the cuts, leadership efforts will lead to better customer service.
For example, in 2009, Toronto asked retailers to charge a single fee of 5 cents.
The use of plastic bags is accompanied by a public education campaign.
According to a staff report, waste was reduced by 53 after the cost came into effect, although mandatory costs were later canceled.
Still, Cormier said retailers would prefer this province if the city insisted on moving towards the ban --
It is not a city that goes alone, it is broad.
This will ensure a level playing field and prevent customers from simply changing their shopping habits and putting banned city stores at a disadvantage, he said.
Meanwhile, St.
John has repeatedly called for a province in Newfoundland and Labrador --
Ban on wide plastic bags.
\"Retailers know there are plastic bags on the walls and they prefer the provincial ban, not just some cities that have decided to ban plastic bags,\" said Deputy Mayor Sheilagh O\'Leary . \".
\"Our hope is that the province will step up and become the first province to ban plastic bags.
We can be leaders.
\"But even if Newfoundland moves quickly, there may be competition.
\"We used to be leaders,\" said Halifax MP Tony Mancini . \" He filed a motion calling on staff to review the ban on plastic bags.
\"It\'s not a game, but I want to be a leader in recycling, etc.
