Down with Single-Use Plastics and Up with Reusibly

Down with Single-Use Plastics and Up with Reusibly 

The federal government recently announced that select single-use plastics will be banned by the end of 2021. While some may criticize this ban amongst the pressures of the pandemic, others recognize the necessities of these measures with an exacerbated, “it's about time!”. Realistically this ban would only equate to about one percent of all of the plastic products that we consume. This may be a small step, but it is a step in the right direction! A report published in January found that in 2016, 29,000 tonnes of plastic ended up as litter across Canada the year prior. This waste finds its way into our waterways, having detrimental impacts on wildlife and fragile ecosystems. Anything we can do to combat this ever growing problem is a necessary effort. Reusibly came into being with this mission in mind, recognizing the necessity for non-disposable alternatives. 

This is just the beginning for Reusibly, we hope to grow alongside this budding awareness around environmentally conscious living. Over time we will expand our offerings to ensure that our patrons have alternatives to satisfy all of their needs: from household items, to grooming, from pet care, to kitchenware's and beyond. We hope to streamline our product range to ensure that switching over to the green side is an easy and straightforward transition.

It is our hope that governments will go to greater lengths to legislate the production, distribution and collection of various plastic goods. Citizens cannot wait for governments action alone, we must take action and reduce our individual impacts however we can. Together with brands like Reusibly consumers have the power to shape the future and to safeguard the environment.
