Toronto’s Eco-Friendly Businesses: Your Voice Matters in Waste Reduction!
Are you a food service business located in Toronto? Are you actively working to minimize the use of single-use plastics and reduce take-out waste?
If so, your experiences and insights can play a crucial role in shaping the City of Toronto’s future programs for businesses in this regard, and you can receive public recognition for your sustainability efforts.
Toronto’s Single-Use Reduction Strategy, which was launched in 2021, is committed to eliminating unnecessary single-use plastic and take-out waste. The initial phase of this strategy, which began in the summer, is specifically designed to assist small businesses in their waste reduction efforts, including the reduction of single-use foodware and related accessories.
Here’s how you can contribute:
Share Your Perspective
Complete the City’s online survey to provide valuable insights into your experiences as a business. Let them know what kind of support you require to effectively reduce waste.
Businesses that participate in the survey will receive recognition from the City for their efforts, and your feedback will directly influence the next steps of Toronto’s Single-Use Reduction Strategy.
Calling Reuse-Oriented Businesses
If your business offers reuse services such as reusable cups and containers, the City wants to hear from you as well! Your unique perspective and experiences are essential for shaping a more sustainable future.
The momentum for reducing single-use plastics and adopting reusable alternatives is growing among Toronto businesses. Consider joining the Reusable Toronto campaign to explore additional opportunities for taking environmentally responsible actions.
By actively participating and sharing your experiences, you can contribute to a greener, more sustainable Toronto while also gaining recognition for your commitment to reducing waste.
Together, we can make a positive impact on the city’s environmental footprint.
