Ly Son Island restricts plastic bag use

The authority of Ly Son Island District off Quang Ngai Province has issued a directive calling on local residents to minimize the use of plastic bags in an effort to build a clean and green island.

The district encourages the islanders and tourists to refrain from using plastic bags, especially at restaurants and hotels.

In the short run, the directive will be applied on a pilot basis on Be Island of An Binh Commune of the district.

The island has become a favorite destination for local and international tourists. However, the island is facing serious pollution as more than 10 tons of garbage is discharged a day but the only waste treatment facility can incinerate 1.5 tons while the remainder is being piled up there, leading to pollution.
