RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Monday that Canada will ban single-use plastics as early as 2021.

While the specific products to be outlawed have yet to be decided, CNN reports that bags, straws, cutlery, and stirring sticks may be included.

According to DW, Trudeau said plastic producers will be held responsible for the full life cycle of their products, and that manufacturers and the companies using the products will need to provide recycling plans.

The government would also work with the companies to establish targets on waste.

The BBC reports that currently, less than 10 percent of plastics are recycled in Canada.

Each year, the country throws away 3 million tonnes of plastic waste, which end up in landfills and incinerators, litter beaches and parks, and pollute bodies of water.

According to the Canadian government, over a million birds and 100,000 sea mammals are injured or die globally each year when they mistake plastic for food.

Trudeau claims that banning single-use plastic will not only reduce pollution and protect the environment, but also create 42,000 jobs in the recycling and recovery industries.

Canada's anti-plastic crusade comes after the EU and the United Kingdom passed similar bans in late March and May, respectively.
