The Story of Plastics

In keeping with Waste Reduction Week in Canada's 20th Anniversary theme of Then-Now-Future, we have developed a series of new infographics telling the story of three program themes/issues: textiles, e-waste, and plastics.

From the invention of the first synthetic polymer, to the first plastic bans in Canada, and to what it will take for a circular future, The Story of Plastics infographic will walk you through the story of plastics production, use, and management.
