OTTAWA — Canada Plastics Pact (CPP) adds five Signatory Partners in Q1 of 2023 who united under the CPP’s shared action plan to build a circular economy for plastics packaging in Canada.
The new Signatory Partners of the CPP are: Apical Reuse, Soapstand, Reusables.com, Lantic Inc., and Change Plastic For Good Inc.
Apical has developed a reusable cannabis packaging system that cuts costs for licensed producers and manufacturers while reducing single-use waste. Soapstand’s affordable refill stations allow for waste-free packaging. Reusables.com is changing the disposable culture at cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores with its cup and container sharing platform. Lantic Inc., a Canadian sugar and sweetener company, is working with the plastics packaging ecosystem to minimize its environmental impact. Change Plastic For Good, a biotechnology group, is offering an alternative to traditional plastics.
“We are pleased to welcome these innovative and forward-thinking companies as new Signatory Partners of the Canada Plastics Pact,” said Paul Shorthouse, Interim Managing Director at the CPP. “By working collaboratively across the entire value chain, addressing both upstream and downstream innovation, we can ensure that plastics are used and disposed of in a sustainable and responsible manner. We are particularly encouraged to be joined by more companies focused on upstream innovation and reuse systems, which will accelerate progress towards achieving a circular plastics packaging economy.”
The CPP, which has over 90 partners, is collaborating with a group of stakeholders across the plastics value chain to address environmental issues. Through this collaboration, the CPP continues to work towards targets for circular plastics packaging in Canada, set out in its Roadmap to 2025.
