Phuket’s public and private sectors recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on a ground breaking ‘No Foam No Plastic’ initiative at the Phuket Sustainable Tourism Blueprint 2018 held on 9 November.
Under the MOU, the local administration plans to promote a ‘No Foam, No Plastic’ effort with local shops and the people effective as of 14 February, 2019, which will see them stop using foam containers for food or other items. Then, as from 1 October, 2019, this effort will be encouraged for the people to switch entirely to paper or eco-friendly bags and straw.
The tourism sector will also inspire business partners to do the same from 14 February, 2019.
