Canada’s resource for information on plastic consumption, use, impacts, and solutions.
Canadians are keenly aware of the consequences tied to plastic waste and are eager to learn how they can reduce the impact of choices they make as individuals, businesses, and governments.
Despite the increasing interest in plastics and reducing its environmental impacts there is no single national repository that provides governments, businesses, educators, researchers, and citizens the necessary scope of information to take meaningful action:
- Inventory of resources and tools
- Relevant facts and figures
- Market developments and business efforts
- Regulatory advances and policy initiatives
- Media coverage
- Educational material
- Consumer tips and more
With the belief that information leads to action, Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) has developed the Plastic Action Centre, an independent open-source repository that gathers information to educate, engage, and empower action on plastics. The Plastic Action Centre is a knowledge hub to provide governments, businesses, educators, researchers, and citizens the necessary scope of information to take meaningful action on plastics.
