Project Details

Vancouver, BC, Canada

More than 40% of plastic produced is designed for single use, and from the plastic we do discard in Canada, only 9% is recycled in Canada. Science tells us if we act now, we can make a difference. With the Plastic Reduction Program for businesses, we can make a difference in our plastic waste.

Placement Details

This placement falls under Ocean Wise’s Plastics Initiative, which aims to turn the tide on ocean plastic by stopping harmful and unnecessary plastics from entering our ocean. As part of this initiative, the Plastic Reduction Program empowers food businesses to be part of the solution to plastic pollution.  Through expert support and science-backed tools, the program helps partner businesses measure their plastic footprint, identify opportunities to reduce, refuse, reuse, or better recycle plastics, and amplify their efforts through community-building and story telling.

The placement includes a mixture of remote work as well as in-person work at various sites around Greater Toronto and Vancouver areas. Participants are involved in content creation, partner and public  outreach/engagement, and corporate auditing.
