There’s no better move in abating non-biodegradable materials than regulating the use of plastic or synthetic products in packaging of bought goods that will likely solve the solid garbage problem, city officials see this assertively.

The city council here has joined with other local government units in the country in prohibiting the use of plastics contained in the recently approved city ordinance. In effect, the days of consumers and traders of plastic bags and styrofoam are numbered but they are encouraged to use the “alternative” and “eco-friendly packaging,” instead.
