June 5, 2009, Toronto – Effective June 1, in tandem with the
introduction of Toronto's new bylaw requiring all merchants to charge a
minimum of five cents for each plastic 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 meet the environmental requirements of the new
bylaw.
