How many Canadians want "green" packaging?

Newly released survey polled roughly 1,000 Canadians

How much do Canadians care about environmentally friendly food packaging?

• 77% of Canadians want more environmentally friendly/green packaging for food products
• 58% of Canadians seek out food that is packaged in containers that can be recycled or reused
• 50% of Canadians actively seek out food that is packaged in an environmentally friendly way
• 32% of Canadians actively seek out restaurants that embrace sustainability practices throughout their operations
