Single Use Plastics Alternatives Trade Show

October 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - October 20, 2021 @ 6:00 pm

Single Use Plastics Alternatives

Single Use Plastics are on their way out in Richmond. Coming into effect March 27, 2022, Richmond’s Single Use Plastic and Other Items Bylaw 10000 bans:

    • Plastic checkout bags (including biodegradable and compostable plastics)
    • Plastic straws (including biodegradable and compostable plastics)
    • Foam food service ware for prepared food (such as foam plates, clamshell containers, bowls and cups)

We know you need the resources to source alternatives. Local business owners, operators and managers are invited to this free trade show to discuss alternatives with vendors, compare products, and pricing.

Bylaw 10000 was adopted to help reduce unnecessary waste and plastic pollution, and the new ban affects all businesses operating in Richmond. This bylaw is also consistent with other bans in other communities, as well as regulations being developed by federal and provincial governments.
