Plastics & Politics: Catherine McKenna



Canada has entered the world stage when it comes to the environment and plastics recovery and reduction.

Member of Parliament for Ottawa Centre and Minister of Environment & Climate Change Catherine McKenna knows what’s up when it comes to reducing single use plastics – she’s also a diver and a swimmer and has seen first hand that the oceans are filled with plastics.


In June 2018 she attended the G7 Summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, where The Charlevoix Blueprint for Healthy Oceans, Seas, and Resilient Coastal Communities was created. 

Find out what Canada is doing on the world stage, who’s leading our Canadian government to a healthier world, and what the Charlevoix Blueprint means going forward not only for Canada but for our world’s oceans and our entire planet.
