Canadians say they care about the environmental damage caused by being single.
A new study shows that plastic packaging is used but not enough to open a wallet and pay for more expensive alternatives.
\"I am disappointed,\" said Sylvain Charlebois, a professor and researcher at Dalhousie University, who surveyed 1,014 Canadians online in May 13-18.
The team began to evaluate the eco-friendly currency of the grocery store, or, in other words, how much money people were willing to come up with to deal with the plastic problem.
According to the United Nations Environment Programme, human beings produce about 0. 3 billion tons of plastic waste per year. Seventy-
According to the United Nations website, plastic waste is piled up in landfill sites, garbage dumps or natural environments, and-

For fear of the Earth, I personally feel motivated to reduce the amount of plastic they use.

Only about the respondents were willing to pay more for items packed for biodegradable, and about 83 said they were not willing to pay more than £ 2.
5 cents premium.
Charlebois said that this is part of the reason why manufacturers may not be willing to switch to green packaging or launch any products without plastic materials.
He said many of the food industry startups he directed were considering using compost or biodegradable packaging, but learned that it would raise their wholesale prices by at least 15 to 20 cents.
\"It could actually make them lose their competition,\" he said . \" Consumers are unlikely to pay a premium for this package, he added.
Tony Walker, an assistant professor at the University, said it was possible to convince consumers to pay more through education, and he was one of the researchers at the project.
He imagined it.
Store placards that show consumers the extra nickel or dime they spend on green packaged products help protect wildlife or keep the ocean clean.
Walker also believes that this is an opportunity for anyone who can develop a viable and lower-cost plastic alternative.
He pointed to a cardboard container, two cents cheaper per carton than a foam plastic container normally used for takeoutout food.
Food dealers and grocery stores will soon turn to cheaper alternatives that are good for the environment, he said.
According to the criteria generally accepted by the survey industry, online surveys cannot be allocated margin of error because there is no random sampling.
