Animal Justice to Intervene in Legal Challenge of Canada’s Single-use Plastics Ban

A coalition of plastics manufacturers and distributors called the “Responsible Plastic Use Coalition” is suing the federal government over its decision to ban the sale, import, and production of certain single-use plastic products including straws, cutlery, and takeout containers. Animal advocacy group Animal Justice has been granted intervenor status in the legal challenge and will put forward important information about the harm that plastic pollution causes to animals.
