The B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch hands out about 22 million plastic bags every year, but is now switching to heavy duty paper.
Plastic bags are soon to become a thing of the past at B.C. government liquor stores.
The B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch is planning to eliminate its distinctive, thicker-than-grocery-store plastic bags in favour of paper bags.
“We’re committed to minimizing the impact of our operations on the environment, and to providing customers with checkout bags that are manufactured responsibly and widely recyclable,” said spokeswoman Viviana Zanocco.
