The Canada Plastics Pact (CPP) has expanded its network with the addition of EcoTank Canada and the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) as partners.  

Launched in January 2022, EcoTank Canada provides refillable windshield-washer fluid dispensers across North America. 

The company is now managing more than 289 dispensers across 129 locations in the region and has successfully eliminated the need for over 115,000 plastic jugs. 

In April this year, CPP founding partner Canadian Tire Corporation joined forces with EcoTank Canada to enhance the impact of its windshield-washer fluid dispenser initiative.  

The partnership is part of the CPP’s Reuse Accelerator project, which receives partial funding from the governmental department Environment and Climate Change Canada. 

Meanwhile, SWANA brings together a community of 10,000 professionals dedicated to transitioning from solid waste management to resource management processes.

The association focuses on education, advocacy, safety, and research, playing a role in collecting and processing plastics for recycling and preventing plastic pollution.  

Its involvement with the CPP is expected to foster design for recycling, boost demand for recycled content, and support vital infrastructure. 

CPP managing director Cher Mereweather said: “To eliminate plastic waste and pollution, we need a holistic strategy that includes both upstream and downstream solutions.

“These new partnerships allow us to better address unnecessary and problematic plastics by providing reusable or refillable alternatives where it makes sense and designing the plastics we do need to be easily recyclable.”  

Since its launch in January 2021, the CPP says it has been actively pursuing initiatives to promote a circular economy for plastics.  

The organisation fosters collaboration with more than 100 partners from across the plastics value chain to redesign packaging and promote the use of recycled plastic. 

In April this year, the CPP, in collaboration with Canada’s National Zero Waste Council, introduced a new guidance document aimed at eliminating plastics.
