Position: Individual Contributor / Business Analyst
Organization: Fork On The Road
Location: virtual/ preferably near Toronto, Ontario
Fork On The Road - Background
Fork On The Road (FOTR) is a grassroots organization that aims to help restaurants in Toronto navigate through and adopt solutions in face of the new regulation to achieve zero plastic waste by the end of 2030.
In October 2020, the Federal Government announced a comprehensive plan that includes banning harmful single-use plastic items like bags and straws.
A key part of the plan is a ban on harmful single-use plastic items where there is evidence that they are found in the environment, are often not recycled, and have readily available alternatives. Based on those criteria, the six items the Government proposes to ban are plastic checkout bags, straws, stir sticks, six-pack rings, cutlery, and food ware made from hard-to-recycle plastics.
There is a concern about the financial vulnerability of restaurant owners with the added costs this transition may bring during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as, the increased amount of waste being generated as delivery and pick-up becomes more prevalent.
Our mission at FOTR is to ensure restaurants in Canada are best equipped with the knowledge, support and resources to successfully make this transition, addressing both their financial concerns and environmental responsibilities.
