Event description

Description

Thank you for your interest in the Single-Use Item Reduction Strategy roundtable discussion on October 3rd, 2017.

Your input is important to us. As a stakeholder, we would like your feedback on potential approaches and targets under consideration for the City of Vancouver's Single-Use Item Reduction Strategy. With your help, we can explore potential approaches to reduce the distribution, use and disposal of single-use items such as disposable cups, take-out food containers, and plastic and paper shopping bags.

The primary focus of this roundtable discussion is challenges and opportunites related to the retail environment. While the roundtable meetings are themed to provide an opportunity for greater depth of discussion, please feel free to sign-up for the session that works best for you and we will do our best to accomodate the multiple voices in the room. Please confirm your attendance by clicking on register above.

The input and ideas from the sessions will be used to formulate a draft Single-Use Item Reduction Strategy that is expected to be presented to City Council in early 2018.

Thank you. We look forward to seeing you soon.

City of Vancouver
