Zero Waste Yukon challenges Yukoners to give up single-use bags and support a policy to reduce bags in the Yukon
Getting to Zero Waste is about engaging citizens and using our collective power to change the systems around us. That’s why we’re campaigning to reduce single-use retail bags in Yukon.
A policy on single-use bags would send a clear message that waste reduction is important to our communities and we all have a role to play. It would also be a great first step towards addressing other ways to keep valuable resources in circulation.
