Plastic bags are just a part of plastic pollution, Senator Legarda
On the surface of it, it seems consistent with the Senator's green advocacies, but it doesn't seem to touch on the fact that plastic bags account for just part of the problem of plastic pollution.
Plastics are everywhere.
There are plastic bottles, plastic sachets, pouches, etcetera that all end up littering the planet and leaching toxins into the environment.
We urge Senator Legarda to expand this proposed legislation to cover ALL plastic packaging and help deter plastic pollution.
The Philippines contributes to the giant plastic gyre in the north pacific and it should do its part in helping curb the growth of this menace.
