A city ordinance that took effect last January 18, 2011 banning the use of plastic bags in Muntinlupa City was widely the topic of most people during the past few days. This was so far the boldest move a city did to address climate change.
We know for a fact that plastic bags contribute a lot in the degredation of our environment. Eventhough people are aware of the bad effects of not recyling and burning plastic bags they still unconciously dump the bags. Maybe because there is no law that prohibits the improper use of it.
I salute the city government of Muntinlupa for implementing such rule. I hope and pray that all city govenments and municipalities do the same.
