Food packaging is Canada's next plastic waste target

Global News has the story.

As plastic bags and ring carriers are slowly phased out in grocery and liquor stores across Canada, the federal government has put the call out to grocery owners, governments and everyday Canadians to weigh in on how it will implement changes to plastic food packaging. 

Ottawa put out a request for input on a what's called a pollution prevention planning notice for plastic packaging that comes into direct contact with food.

Sean Previl reports on what the government is asking for, and how it could impact Canadians' pocketbooks at the grocery store.
