Forestry Industry Rebuts CPIA’s Comments on Nova Scotia Plastic Bag Ban

Time:2019-10-16 16:00 Author:Suny Group

The Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) has challenged the claims made by the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) that the ban imposed on plastic bags by Nova Scotia is anti-environmental. The CPIA commentary published last week had stated that replacement of plastic bags with carbon-intensive paper bags will prove to be self-defeating for the province.

In a letter addressed to Ms. Carol Hochu, President and CEO, CPIA, the FPAC expressed its disappointment in CPIA’s approach. It completely misrepresents the works being done by the provincial as well as federal forest products sectors and their commitment to environmental stewardship. Moreover, the release contains several misinformations about the forestry sector, said Derek Nighbor, President and CEO, FPAC.

The impacts of bleaching process mentioned in the report are completely misleading and out of date. Nowadays, paper bags come from kraft pulp, which does not require bleaching. Moreover, the whole country has only one mill that manufactures paper bags, which itself is located more than 4,000 kilometres from Halifax.

FPAC also refuted allegation by the CPIA that paper bags emit 4 times more carbon dioxide in their production than plastic bags, saying that it has no relevance to NS or Canadian operations, as it is based on a study conducted in North Carolina mills in 2006 and 2007. On the contrary, FPAC noted that Canada’s pulp and paper sector is 3-4 times less carbon-intensive that their U.S. counterparts.
