It is estimated Malaysia produces 0.94 million tonnes of mismanaged plastic wastes/year & 15% – 40% of the waste gets drifted to the ocean. (Kementerian Alam Sekitar dan Air)
Without intervention, plastic wastes are expected to outweigh fish and other marine life in our oceans. We have a role to play to curb plastic pollutions and create a better future for us and every other living organism on our planet.
