On November 6, 2019, the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte proposed to consider the idea of banning the single-use plastics.

To solve the problem of plastic waste, legislative changes are necessary. During the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, banning of plastic and the legal side of solving this problem were considered. A plastic ban policy will apply throughout the country.

However, to prohibit plastic, it is also necessary to determine what material will be offered to replace the plastic. President Rodrigo Duterte considered options such as biodegradable plastic and biodegradable paper. But the final decision on this issue has not yet been made.

However, the president was still pondering what material would be allowed to replace the of single-use plastics.

In 2015, the Ocean Conservancy charity and McKinsey Center for Business and the Environment named the Philippines the third largest source of discarded plastic that enters the ocean after two other Asian countries: China and Indonesia.

The Philippines emits 2.7 million tons of plastic waste annually. 0.5 million tons’ flow into the oceans.

The amount of plastic waste in the Philippines increased significantly in the 1970s when consumer-goods companies began selling products in single-use, throwaway packaging.

Vernis Victorio, Executive Director of the Natural Resources Development Corporation, presented priority programs for environmental sustainability and climate change at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers
