HCM City has urged the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to strengthen promotion of eco-friendly plastic bag usage, to limit the impact of nylon bags on the environment.
All supermarkets in HCM City have committed to using eco-friendly bags. Retailers and traders in traditional markets are being encouraged to commit to using eco-friendly plastic bags instead of nylon bags.
Drastically limiting the use of plastic bags, which do not decompose, the city’s People’s Committee has also asked the ministry to study and issue regulations on the use of nylon bags at markets, trade centres, convenience stores and bookstores.
