Environment committee praises Foodsmiths, Perth, on green initiatives

By InsideOttawaValley, February 10, 2020 We are writing to bring public attention to Foodsmiths’ recent decision to discontinue the provision of plastic shopping bags to its customers. This proactive action supports all our efforts to use less and less plastic. This comes at a time when the Canadian federal government is moving toward legislation, in 2021, to ban single-use plastics following the release of a comprehensive Environment Ministry report outlining the harmful impacts of plastics on our planet.

At the same time, we also notice that Foodsmiths has increased offerings of alternatives to plastic use, with items such as glass jars and cloth-based produce bags that can be reused.
