Public Engagement on Control of Single -use Plastics

Plastics are light, durable and inexpensive. They are commonly used in our daily lives. However, their massive production and consumption will cause pollution, as they can persist in the environment for hundreds of years, affecting our ecosystems, endangering animal lives and also threatening human health.

Besides, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the demand for single-use plastic items, for example, personal protective equipment, face masks, gloves, and bottled hand sanitizers. The pandemic has also popularised single-use food packaging, takeaway, delivery services and online shopping, which increase the society’s reliance on single-use plastics.

Council for sustainable Development invites different sectors of society and members of the public to give their views on the implementation of the "Control of Single-use Plastics". 

This can help them formulate an effective and practicable proposal after considering the views from different perspectives.
