Ban plastic bag usage completely


Excessive use: Traders are willing to sell plastic bags because they are making a profit and consumers do not paying because it is quite cheap, says Peka.

PETALING JAYA: Environmental groups have reacted to the government’s decision to extend the 20sen plastic bag charge to all types of business premises in 2022, by calling for a complete ban on the use of plastic bags.

Pertubuhan Pelindung Khazanah Alam Malaysia (Peka) president Puan Sri Shariffa Sabrina Syed Akil said if the government wanted to help reduce the single usage of plastic, it should completely ban it.
