According to BERNAMA, Environment and Water Minister Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man has received the mandate that requires all local governments to start imposing such charges to promote consumer awareness throughout the country.


In a statement, he expressed, "This initiative that has been implemented since 2021 is an effective effort in reducing plastic pollution in Malaysia. I hope this initiative will continue to be supported by all parties for the sake of environmental sustainability which is our shared responsibility." (Source: The Malaysian Reserve)
