According to the "Central News Agency" report, on the 27th local time, the Vancouver City Council voted to ban plastic straws from April 2020 and plastic bags from New Year's Day in 2021
According to Reuters, Vancouver's move is in response to calls in many countries to reduce plastic pollution, in order to reduce the use of plastic bags and other single-use plastic products
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced in June 2019 that he plans to ban certain single-use plastic products, such as straws, plastic bags and plastic tableware, in early 2021
The City of Vancouver says plastic bags and straws each account for 3 per cent of local seaside waste each year
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) pointed out that after the implementation of the plastic bag ban, businesses can change to provide paper bags, 15 cents per paper bag (about 8 cents) in the first year, and then it will increase to 25 cents per paper bag (about 80 cents).
