/R E P E A T -- Pizza Nova voluntarily pulls plastic bags from all restaurant locations/

    TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ - Effective June 1, 2009 in tandem with the
introduction of the City of Toronto's new By-Law 356-09, that requires all
merchants, including restaurateurs, to charge a minimum of five cents for each
plastic retail shopping bag, Pizza Nova has voluntarily discontinued the use
of all plastic bags from all of their restaurant locations across Ontario.
    "We appreciate and support the efforts being put forth by the city to
reduce the distribution and use of plastic bags," says Domenic Primucci,
Executive Vice President of the family-owned business.
    "As supporters of several environmental initiatives, we feel that
discontinuing the use of plastic bags at all of our locations across the
province is an action that serves to benefit our community."
    Pizza Nova will continue to provide their customers with free bags to
carry their product, that do in fact meet the environmental requirements of
the new By-Law.
