Plastic Waste

Plastics Thursday

The City of Charlottetown and Happy Ocean teamed up for Plastics Thursday!

Our "throw-away" lifestyle often creates large quantities of waste from single-use products that we use for just a few minutes. These include products such as coffee cup lids, water bottles, straws, and cutlery. The environmental impacts of these single-use items can be quite detrimental.

In PEI, we are very lucky to have the highest rate of waste diversion in Canada. However, a great deal of the single-use plastics we use still end up in landfills, lakes, parks and oceans where they cause harm to the environment.

To learn more about why single-use plastics can create so many problems, take a look at the resources along the sidebar.

Check out the infographic below for Happy Ocean's suggestions to reduce your single-use plastic waste!
