Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday the Federal Government plans to ban harmful single-use plastics as early as 2021.
This is being met with positivity from a Cambridge paper straw manufacturing company called Green Circle Dine Ware.
It is the first Canadian manufacturer of paper drinking straws.
Geet Sheth is the founder of Green Circle Dine Ware, he said the proposed plan is coming sooner then he had expected.
“We are at the right time in our business where we have developed the product, we have the certification for the product, and the ban has come at the right time as well. So definitely in terms of benefits, we already started getting inquires from distributors, restaurant chains and users in terms of our sustainable products.”
