Vice Gov Barba: Eliminating single-use plastics requires discipline

Nov 7, 2018 @ 18:43

Ilocos Norte Vice Governor Angelo Barba said discipline is needed if Filipinos want to cut down the amount of single-use plastics being dumped into the environment.

The Ilocos Norte politiko has been pushing for an anti-single-use plastic ordinance in the province.

Last August, he issued a memorandum banning single-use plastics in the Office of the Vice Governor and the Provincial Board.

Barba said single-use plastics not only destroy the environment but also cause floods.

“Nakita naman ninyo na pinagbawal ko na ang paggamit ng single-use plastics dahil ito ang karaniwang bumabara sa ating mga kanal,” he said.

“Makikita rin sa social media kung gaano na karami ang plastic sa planeta,” Barba added.
