ASEAN MEMBERS AIM TO CURB PLASTIC DEBRIS_2

Governments should "act more drastically" by introducing immediate bans on single-use plastic so that more businesses follow suit, said Nattapong Nithi-Uthai, who leads volunteer network Trash Hero that cleans up the Gulf of Thailand in southern Pattani province. He also said ASEAN should aim to significantly improve its waste management schemes, as well as hold producers of consumer goods accountable. "There should be designated places for every single item to go. If things are piled up somewhere, they can leak into the ocean," he said. "Producers should also be made responsible for taking back the single-use plastic they produce. This might make them think twice about producing single-use packaging." (ICE GIACARTA)
