Walmart To Eliminate Single-Use Plastic Bags Across Canada By April 22nd!

Don't forget your reusable bags!

Late last year Walmart announced that it would be eliminating the use of single-use plastic bags for in-store purchases by early April.


Spring has sprung and as of next week, April 22nd, the more than 400 locations across Canada will no longer offer this option!


FYI- April 22nd is also Earth day!

Walmart says the change will prevent almost three-quarters of a billion plastic bags from entering circulation each year.


According to Environment and Climate Change Canada, Canadians discard three million tonnes of plastic waste each year, and only nine percent of it is recycled.
