The Government of Canada has implemented a comprehensive plan known as the single-use plastic ban to tackle pollution and achieve zero plastic waste by 2030. This initiative also aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Effective December 2023, the distribution and sale of single-use plastic have been prohibited by the Government of Canada. Distributors are required to transition to environmentally friendly alternatives and deplete their existing stock.
As a result, our retail check-out bags: T-shirt and Die Cut Bags are only available for purchase until December 31st, 2023 or while quantities last.
Creative Bag is committed to reducing single-use plastics and helping the environment. As part of our efforts, we are delighted to offer our eco-friendly alternatives that are recyclable, biodegradable, and reusable.
