Lowe’s Canada is committed to reducing the environmental footprint of its operations, including the amount of waste that is being sent to landfills. As a result, the company has taken tangible measures to encourage customers to stop using plastic bags when shopping at their stores.
In 2018, to provide a deterrent to the use of these bags and entice customers to change their shopping habits, the company implemented a charge for plastic bags at all its Lowe’s, RONA and Reno-Depot corporate stores: 5¢ for standard plastic bags and 10¢ for thicker bags. Profits from this initiative are donated to the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) to fund conservation across the country.
NCC has 90 priority natural areas across the country in which we are continually seeking opportunities to conserve new lands. This advantageous partnership with Lowe’s Canada will provide us with the resources we need to protect the natural areas we love and the species they sustain.
