Single Use Plastic Elimination and Recycling (SUPER) task force on Salt Spring Island
SUPER – Single Use Plastic Elimination and Recycling task force – is a small group of Salt Spring Island residents who are trying to incentivise the elimination of as much single use plastic as possible both on our island and beyond. We also work to ensure that the rest, along with other plastics, are recycled.
We aim to do this through research, education and outreach, trying to create change through encouraging and proposing amicable steps and resolutions by both businesses and consumers.
