The House of Commons today unanimously adopted the Private Member's Bill M 151 put forward by Courtenay-Alberni Member of Parliament Gord Johns! This bill calls for a national strategy to combat plastic pollution. Many people who attended our SAGE event on ocean plastics signed the petition to put this bill forward and our group is thrilled to see Parliament taking this positive step on plastics.
What can we do individually? Create and use our own grocery bags! Refuse plastic bags at the checkout (most clerks will THANK you!). READ MORE on our SAGE pages on this website and connect with the work of others through our posted links.
