Ilocos Norte Vice Governor Angelo Barba wants a ban on single-use plastic in the province.

The Ilocos Norte politiko said single-use plastics have been piling up in the province’s coastal areas.

Barba also reminisced about the cleanliness of the province’s beaches when he was a child.

“Noong bata pa lang kami, nagbabakasyon lang kami dito. Pinapasyal kami ng father ko sa mga beach dito sa Ilocos Norte,” he said.

“At habang tumatagal, napakaraming nang basura na mga single-use plastic. Parang naging advocacy ko na iyon, hindi lang sa coastal areas, kundi pati sa Nueva era, Banna, Pinili – lahat ng bayan sa Pangalawang Distrito,” Barba added.
