Feedback welcomed to improve #BebasPlastik campaign

SHAH ALAM: The state government is ready for discussions with any party to improve the implementation of the plastic bag free campaign in Selangor.
Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said this is due to the additional feedback regarding the campaign’s implementation.
“From the feedback we’ve gathered, the response is very encouraging and positive from consumers and the citizens.
“However, with additional feedback, we are ready to discuss on how to improve our campaign,” he said while officiating an event at the Silver Jubilee Hall on January 21.
Retailers who charge RM0.20 for every plastic bag can use the money for their corporate social responsibility development programmes.
Tourism, Environment, Green Technology and Consumer Affairs Exco Elizabeth Wong said although the proposal is yet to be furthered into a resolution, it can still be implemented to fulfil the social responsibilities of retailers.
However, Wong said this recommendation is not yet a resolution in this state as implemented in Penang and other developed countries, for CSR programmes.
Prior to this, only the Penang Government had formalised the implementation of CSR programmes in an effort to collect money for the purpose of social responsibility services.
