MetadataShow full item record
A marine conservation group is eyeing to sue the National Solid Waste Management Commission (NSWMC) for its alleged inaction to solve the problem of plastic pollution. The marine conservation group Oceana, in a statement released Sunday, said a notice to sue was sent to the members of NSWMC for alleged inaction to implement Republic Act 9003, also known as the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. “We can no longer bear the inaction of the NSWMC which has failed to implement its mandated task to prepare a list of non-environmentally acceptable products and packaging (NEAPP),” said Gloria Estenzo Ramos, vice president of the said organization dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans.
