As part of the Federal ban on single-use items, all Trees’ locations will not provide plastic bags on “to-go” orders. Our stores will have an optional paper bag, made out of 40% recycled material and 100% recyclable, and reusable bags available for purchase.
The By-Law extends to disposable cups, straws and plastic cutlery. Reinforced by the Government of British Columbia, the by-law also states that:
- There is a minimum $0.25 fee for each disposable cup (to-go cups).
- There are fees for paper (minimum $0.15) and new reusable shopping bags.
At Trees, we are fully committed to helping reduce plastic waste and pollution, even during the pandemic. We have ensured we are aligned with the latest public health guidelines to protect the health and safety of residents, businesses, and their staff.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
