Eco-fees an ethic/legal sore spot

An update via CBC on Dollarama’s eco-fee class action lawsuit- imo a troubled topic- retailers must make margin but also try to send worthy ‘eco signals’ – perhaps in future more retailers will try to reduce the need to fight such lawsuits by more explicitly showing/explaining any specific eco-fees? via emails, websites, store signage?

Maybe it’s just me – but imo charging an eco fee on batteries & other discardable electronics/ hazardous waste is a defensible approach if one is upfront about it & where the fee$ are donated/spent.
