Vigan bans plastic bags

The city government of Vigan is working for an ordinance prohibiting, regulating and prescribing certain uses of plastics for goods and commodities that end up as residual waste and promoting the use of eco bags and other environment-friendly practices as an alternative in the locality.

The ordinance will be enforced in the locality, particularly in establishments, including public markets, as well as with stakeholders which produce, use, buy, sell and dispose plastics and styros.

The establishments also will have to stop the use and sale of non-biodegradable plastics and styrophor or styrofoam as containers for food, drinks or any business produce or products.
 
This will seriously contribute to a reduction in the volume of solid wastes generated by local communities that end up in esteros, waterways, rivers, creeks and canals.

Under the ordinance, establishments like shopping malls, markets, convenience stores, supermarkets, grocery stores, restaurants and fast foods are prohibited from using plastics bags for purchased goods.
 
The provincial government of Laguna first implemented the outright ban on the use of plastic bags.
