A Guide To Breaking Up With Plastic

Think of this sobering thought - every piece of plastic you have ever touched is still on Earth. Whether intact or disintegrating, it's here. The plastic pollution crisis was bad enough before the pandemic, but the response to COVID-19 has also resulted in increased use of plastic-based products such as reusable masks, gloves and even more packaging as we shopped online more, just to name a few. How do we move away from this bad romance with plastic? Greenpeace Malaysia would like to help, and have put together a Breaking Up With Plastic Guide to assist us all. We find out more from Hema Mahadevan, Greenpeace Malaysia's Public Engagement Campaigner.
