Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu is “seriously considering” a ban on single-use plastic items in Aklan’s Boracay Island to address its growing garbage problem. The prohibition of the use of single-use plastic products would not only help solve the island’s solid waste problem but also plastic pollution that threatens its marine environment, he said. “Plastic, particularly those for single-use packaging, has greatly contributed to the degradation of the environment,” he said. “Plastic pollution continues to poison our oceans and injure marine life. When not properly disposed, they clog waterways and cause flooding,” he added.
