The Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) is promoting and helping sponsor the annual Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up. We are also leading efforts to engage the plastics industry in the clean-up event.
Every year, tens of thousands of Canadians participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, which allows people to take action against shoreline litter through clean-ups. These clean-ups are among the largest direct action environmental programs in Canada and represent the third largest cleanup in the world. The data gathered during the clean-ups are reported to the International Coastal Cleanup.
