The City of Regina is leaning on the public when it comes to ways to reduce the use of single-use plastics.

Those items include plastic bags, disposable food containers, lids, drinking straws, and plastic cutlery.

Regina is just one of many places in the country taking aim at reducing single-use plastics.

Nova Scotia is currently in the process of banning plastic bags, while Victoria voted to implement the ban in January 2018, with the law taking effect last July.
