The LCBO’s recent decision to phase out its single-use plastic bags seems to have been well-received by the public, but the move has drawn fire from the Canadian Plastics Industry Association.

The association has argued that the Liquor Control Board of Ontario’s decision is purely political, but the board maintains that it isn’t riding a wave of anti-plastics sentiment. Canadian Plastics spoke with both sides, and offers you an in-depth look at the LCBO’s decision.

Additionally, we take you to the 10th International Conference on Progress in Biofibre Plastic Composites, which took place in Toronto last month.
