Melaka To Declare Fridays And Saturdays As No Plastic Days
State Education, Higher Education, Science and Technology, Green Technology and Innovation executive councilor Datuk Md Yunos Husin said the matter was decided at a state exco meeting yesterday following discussions with representatives from all the supermarkets.
Describing the initiative as an effort to preserve the environment, he said," The practice does not cost the consumers or supermarket operators anything but educates them to go green."
Speaking after opening the Melaka Schools Principals and Headmasters Professionalism Day here today, he added that they were also not allowed to sell plastic bags on the days.
Previously the premises had a "No Plastic Bag Day" on only Saturdays.
On a separate development, Md Yunos said an investigation would be conducted regarding several schools in the state claiming they could not implement the 1BestariNet programme effectively due to bad internet access.
