JASTRe calls for a plastic-free Ramadhan

With the use of plastic bags expected to increase as thousands of people would be thronging Ramadhan markets spread across the country for their Sungkai food takeaways, the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) under the Ministry of Development urged the public to use reusable bags instead of plastic ones to support the government’s effort to reduce plastic pollution.
