Starting March 1, the Bani municipal government is banning single-use plastics.
Bani will be the local government unit to implement a selective plastic ban.
Municipal Ordinance No. 05 series of 2008 “prohibits, regulates and prescribes uses of plastic for goods and commodities.”
It also promotes “the use of eco-bags and other environmentally friendly practices as an alternative.”
The ban is applicable for both individuals and businesses.
