Bang plastic issue still hot in the main stream media, both electronic and printed media. For me public must understand why and ready to change. The government must educate public sistematically and aggressively. Public must understand and support this NO plastic bags campaign. Plastic caused health and environmental effect to human and it is very costly to solve the problems later.

PETALING JAYA: The Selangor government’s “No Plastic Bag Day” campaign, now held on Saturdays, will be extended to every day of the week starting 2017.
Elizabeth Wong said the state government will couple this with the polystyrene-free containers campaign next year.
“Beginning Jan 1, 2017, all retailers in Selangor will no longer provide polystyrene containers and free single-use plastic bags.
“Local council by-laws have been revised to support this policy and retailers must agree to go plastic-free when applying for or renewing their licences.
