Canada prohibits the use of disposable plastics

Reuter  Canada plans to ban the use of some disposable plastics such as straws, bags and cutting tools no later than 2021 to reduce waste that cannot be recycled and protect the world's oceans.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday that the action from the shores of the lake at Gault Nature Reserve in Quebec was less than five months before national elections. Climate change and pollution are included in the main campaign issues for the democratic process.

"To be honest, as a father, it's hard to try to explain to my children. How do you explain dead whales being dragged to the shore all over the world, their bellies filled with plastic bags?" said Trudeau.

"As parents, we are at the stage when we take our children to the beach and we have to find a way in the sand that is not filled with garbage, Styrofoam or bottles. This is a problem, we must deal with," the prime minister added, as Reuters quoted Antara monitored in Jakarta on Tuesday.

Canada's actions follow the actions of the European Parliament, which earlier this year voted to ban some disposable plastic products, and recent disputes with the Philippines and Malaysia regarding Canadian waste sent to both countries.

Last year, Canada commissioned a G7 ocean plastic charter intended to reduce the use of plastic. In May, the United Nations said 180 countries reached an agreement to sharply reduce the amount of plastic washed into the ocean.

Canada's delay regarding implementation until 2021 gave time to make a decision "based on science" about which plastic is "which is dangerous for the environment and human health," a government statement said.

It will also give employers time to adjust. Fast food restaurants will have to find a new solution for straws and plastic cutlery, for example.

Canada has recently been involved in a political dispute with the Philippines in connection with 1,500 tons of household waste - which is misleadingly labeled as recycled plastic - which was sent to the Southeast Asian country in 2013 and 2014. Canada in May agreed to take it back, after a protracted diplomatic dispute.

Malaysia also said it would return 3,000 tons of plastic waste from Canada, the United States, Japan and Britain.

"The problem of plastic pollution will continue to be seen as a problem for developing countries, who feel they are being stocked with waste from rich countries - who must take care of their own waste in their country," said Sara Seck, professor of law at Dalhousie University.. (Source REUTERS)
