In July, General Synod passed a resolution regarding single-use plastic products which asked us to:
Encourage dioceses and parishes to curtail their purchase of single-use plastic products with the intention to end their use by 2023, taking into consideration the accessibility needs of their communities;
Encourage individual Anglicans to reduce their reliance on single-use plastic products;
Encourage the Anglican Church of Canada to develop and promote resources aimed at supporting local efforts toward plastics reduction.
The full resolution can be found here.
General Synod will NOT be using single use plastic products during the upcoming synod. We thank the folks at St. Matthews that are making this possible by supplying the use of, and clean-up of their crockery during our meals and breaks during synod.
