Selangor – No Plastic Bag Day Every Saturday
No Plastic Bag Day / Hari Tana Beg Plastik Selangor / 无塑料袋日
Following Penang foodsteps, now Selangor implements “No Plastic Day” every Saturday. Effective Jan 1, a “No Plastic Bag Day” would be observed every Saturday and retailers and shopping centres throughout the state were urged to reduce the use of plastic bags.
I believe this is a very good and positive move by the government to educate our citizen to care about our mother nature. Today is the last Saturday of the month where Selangor started “No Plastic Bag Day”, I believe most ppl already know / aware of the campaign, some of my friends even tell me I will not go shopping today because no plastic bag and will shop tomorrow? This is not supposed to be the way right? Haha what’s the purposed of “No Plastic Bag Day” then?
There’s a lot of buntings and posters about “No Plastic Bag Day” placed at major shopping centers. If you request for a plastic bag, you will be charged 20 sen per bag.
For me, will not be affected because everytime I buy something I request them not to give me plastic bag but if you were to shop for groceries (impossible to carry all the groceries in your hand), I would suggest you to bring your own Recycle Bag / reusable shopping bag 環保袋, save our earth for the better future.
