In response to what it calls “an alarming and rapid rise in issues” related to environmental concerns about plastic film products, the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) has announced that it will create a strategic fund.

The Plastic Film Manufacturers Association of Canada (PFMAC) will be holding an auction night at its general meeting in September in order to provide funds for the purpose.

Companies in the industry such as raw material suppliers have provided products that will be sold to the highest bidder.

Interested bidders don’t have to attend the industry meeting on September 23 in order to bid on PFMAC’s auction offerings. Bid forms will be sent out to all members, as well as descriptions of donated products.

CPIA is hoping to use the strategic fund to address issues such as plastic bag bans, taxes and restrictions. According to the association, items at the auction will appeal to suppliers, extruders and converters. Auction items will also come with a personal draw prize.

For more information on registering for this event, please contact Marilyne Berman at 905-678-0774.
