Contact your MPP to address the plastic crisis that we are facing, and ask them about what their actions and plans are in minimizing plastic waste. You can also inquire about potential implementations or improvements towards curbside recycling, composting/biodegradable options availability in grocery stores and waste facilities throughout the city. You can request them to create infrastructure for a community recycling centre to collect #5 Polypropylene (yogurt containers and more), other than WholeFoods Grocery Stores.
