All about Plastic Ban

While i support plastic ban, i really question the implementation and the boundaries of the said law.

The City Makati recently imposed the banning of polystrene and plastic bags which is fine. What bothers me is bakit kasama ang mga Straw, and spoon and fork. Go to any 7-11 stores or fast food chain and hindi na sila magbibigay. How the heck would you then drink your soda without spilling it kung walang straw. How will you eat your rice meals then.. Chopsticks?.. Paano kung soup.. Higupin nalang from the bowl? Gagawa na ba sila ng wooden spoon and fork?..

I just think its stupid. Ban or limit the plastic packaging or bags. That should be enough.

    ^kung walang bundok ng basura, saan na nila itatago ang mga katawan ng mga ni whack nila for failing to pay gambling debts?
    =

    honga e.. one good thing those jollijeeps had for them was that pwede kang bumili ng styro and utensils.
  • Dapat daw bumalik sa pagkakamay :glee:


    Ako nga, hindi ako pabor diyan sa pagba ban ng plastic, hindi naman talaga yun ang cause perse ng problem, kundi ang improper waste disposal.


    Tanggalin man nila ang plastic, same problem pa din yan, eh hindi lang naman plastic ang basura ah.

    QC atleast allows plastic utensils to be used with paper plates.

    guess what? to be a yuppie .... you have to live by binalot sa dahon ng saging meals and bilao plates.





    this is what you get with BINAYs and UNA.
  • masarap naman yung binalot ah :glee:

    may na encounter na akong paper straw sa moa naman. hindi pa ako tapos uminon lumambot agad yung straw. hindi talaga kaya na paper ang straw.

    on topic: di ko nga rin maintindihan sa plastic ban, yung mga paper cups etc.. mas biodegradable ba talaga ang mga iyon? sa texture pa lang, tingin ko parehas rin sila ng lifespan ng plastic.

    then mas gusto ko pa nga yung may plastic bag pag nag grocery, kasi ginagamit ko ulit as garbage bag naman. e ngayon yung paper bag sa grocery, deretso tapon na kasi wala ka pa bahay sira na.

    Ang naiisip ko lang, swerte nung negosyanteng magiging major supplier nung biodegradable na kapalit. I mean, really.

    Baka tao ni Pnoy or ni Binay makakakuha niyan. :lol:

    binanggit mo yan, oo nga, kung ganyan pala, dapat bawal na rin ang tarpaulin na hindi gawa sa papel, para malusaw ang mga mukha nila. :glee:

    I'm also not so convinced about this plastic bans. For me, excuse ito ng gobyerno dahil sa kakulangan sa pagma-manage ng mga basura natin.

    For me, dapat i-ban ang mga palstic sachets!
  • In our city, nun na-ban ang plastics, the mayor included the tarpaulin. Kaya they used cloth and woodboard for their campaign materials last election.

    Dapat ganun din sa Makati, bawal na mga tarpaulins :lol:

    That was just an example. Sa 7-11, my gripe was the unavailability of straws. Try drinking when you're in a moving vehicle without the straw. Missing spoon and fork was when i ordered KFC rice meal and soup to go.

    Makati City deploys 45 monitoring teams on use of plastic

    As it starts enforcing a stricter anti-plastics ordinance this week, Makati City is deploying 45 teams from the Plastic Monitoring Task Force (PMTF) to inspect 738 establishments using plastic packaging.

    The city government said the teams will determine the establishments' inventory of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials.

    Department of Environmental Services (DES) chief Danilo Villas said each team will have five members representing the Makati Health Department Sanitation Division, Business Permits Office, Makati Action Center, Liga ng mga Barangay, and DES.

    He said 19 teams have been assigned to cover establishments in District I, six teams in District 2, and 20 teams in the six villages.

    "Their initial target of 738 establishments comprises 209 food establishments and 529 retail outlets. The teams will inspect nine food and 101 retail stores in District I, 71 food and 237 retail outlets in District II, and 129 food and 196 retail outlets in the villages and Central Business District," the city government said.

    Data from the city Business Permits Office show a total of 1,674 food establishments and 5,694 retail outlets in Makati.

    The inventories will be the basis for subsequent evaluations of their compliance with the Solid Waste Management Code of Makati.

    Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay Jr. said that under City Ordinance 2003-095, food and retail establishments are given nine years to dispose of all their stocks of plastics, Styrofoam and similar materials, and replace them with environment-friendly materials.

    “We are now on the ninth year of implementing the ordinance, so we believe we have given establishments enough time to prepare for the full phase-out being required of them. The new Executive Order I issued recently has, in fact, extended the deadline to June 20, 2013,” Binay said.

    He also called on the owners of concerned establishments to make a serious effort to come up with environment-friendly substitutes for the packaging of their products.

    This will help the government in the fight against global warming, he said.

    Also, Binay ordered the monitoring teams to immediately obtain the current stocks inventory of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials of establishments.

    He said the data will serve as the basis for evaluating compliance with the disposal order, which will be made through quarterly inspections conducted by the monitoring teams.

    No compliance

    Binay issued the order after learning from the DES that no establishment has complied with the required quarterly submission of a stock inventory report on non-biodegradable materials such as thin film, single-use and carry-out plastic bags.

    The PMTF has been designated to monitor the compliance of all supermarkets, public markets, shopping malls/department stores, restaurants, fast food chains, convenience stores, canteens, eateries and similar establishments to the ordinance.

    Under the implementing rules and regulations of the “Use of Environment-Friendly Materials,” these establishments are prohibited from selling, using or distributing plastic bags for use as primary or secondary packaging on dry goods, or as secondary packaging for wet goods.

    The sale, use or distribution of Styrofoam (Polystyrene) and other materials with non-biodegradable components that are being used as containers for food, drinks, dining utensils and beverages is also strictly prohibited.


    Full effect in 2013

    Once the ban takes effect in June next year, the management will be required to provide, for free or for a fee, paper bags, cloth bags, basket/woven bags made from biodegradable packaging materials, woven native bags and other similar materials in lieu of plastic shopping bags.

    Earlier, Binay issued a new EO to amend the initial EO issued last December, which makes specific distinction between “primary” and “secondary” packaging materials and exempts certain products from the plastic ban will take effect next week.

    Primary packaging materials are defined as “first level product packaging that contains the item sold,” which are used for wet produce, snack foods, frozen foods, and hardware.

    Secondary packaging materials are “those used to provide support for wet goods with primary packaging,” usually for the convenience of the handlers or customers.

    Products exempted from the order are plastic bottled products like bottled water, ice tea, cooking oil, alcohol, mayonnaise, jelly, peanut butter, and coco jam.

    Also included in the exemption are plastic sachet products like shampoo and conditioner, soap/detergent, noodles; cosmetics; cigarette case; plastic bags used as primary packaging on wet goods with thickness of 15 microns above.

    Covered establishments are also required to place a clearly marked “Plastic Bag Recovery Bin” at entrances and exits that are visible and accessible, for the purpose of collecting, recycling and disposal of plastic bags.

    Barangay Halls are likewise required to have the same clearly marked recovery bins that will serve as drop-off points to collect plastic bags from barangay residents.

    DES will coordinate with reputable recyclers/organized junk-shop operators for the proper collection, transportation, recycling and disposal of plastic bags dropped in the said bins. — LBG, GMA news.

    everyday you should make it a point to bring along your own fork and spoons or a spork or learn to use chopsticks.

    MKT is killing the local Samalamig business by banning the use of plastic cups. they are favoring the big softdrink and tea bottling companies.

    dapat bawal na rin a softdrinks and tea PET bottles. PET stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate or PLASTIC for short.

    If you know you'll be consuming food that requires spoon and fork, do your own part by bringing your own utensils. Bring your own reusable straw. Its the same principle as bringing your own shopping bag.
