The BCCEC in association with the Ministry of Environment and Housing supports the Single Use Plastics and Styrofoam Ban - starting nationwide January 2020. Plastic and Styrofoam waste affects human health, animals, and the environment. The overuse of plastics and Styrofoam has resulted in the widespread pollution and contamination of our environment that threatens our marine and terrestrial biodiversity.
Plastic and Styrofoam litter diminishes the beauty of our islands which attracts millions of tourists annually. We can reduce our plastic waste by looking into alternative products to use instead of plastic. Let us work together to protect our environment!
