Tackling increasing plastics pollution in Malaysia


YESTERDAY was World Consumer Rights Day and the theme for 2021 is “Tackling Plastic Pollution”.

Plastic pollution is the scourge of humanity. In Malaysia the problem is serious. In 2020 we used 148,000 tonnes of plastic packaging for food. Our annual per capita plastic packaging usage is 16.78kg. This use of plastic has been increasing year by year despite campaigns designed to move people away from single-use plastics.
