Elimination of plastic bags at checkouts on March 1, 2023Actions
Starting March 1, 2023, we will be eliminating single-use plastic bags from checkouts at all Lake Country Co-op locations. We are committed to ensuring the sustainability of our communities for generations to come. In 2022, together with FCL, we signed the Canada Plastic Pact (CPP). The CPP has set clear, actionable targets, one being that businesses take measures to eliminate unnecessary plastic packaging.
Why are we doing this?
Sustainability is a key opportunity for Lake Country Co-op and our future. We are committed to ensuring the sustainability of our communities for generations to come. Sustainable practices help us make better decisions for our members, customers, team members, and partners, ensuring the long-term success of our company. We are proud of the actions we have taken to address our role in sustainable development and look forward to continued progress in the year ahead.
