I'm sure by now you're all aware that on October 7 the Canadian government announced that they will be banning certain single use plastics by the end of next year.
While the list is somewhat short and there is still a long way to go, I think it's still important to celebrate ANY step (big or small) that's in the right direction towards positive change.
Though the ban doesn't officially take effect until the end of 2021, I figure, why wait?! Why not start replacing those harmful plastics now?!
So, I've put together a list of 5 of the items included in the ban along with simple swaps that you can make to get started living with less plastic ASAP.
p.s. when you bundle some or all of these swaps together, it makes a great gift! Share the plastic-free love.

Okay…that last one isn't on the Government list but it's still a great swap!
An estimated 16 Billion disposable coffee cups are purchased each year and the majority of them are made with materials that are not recyclable, including single-use plastics.
