The Ministry of Environment is focusing on implementing an alternative program to prevent 750 ml plastic bottles from entering the environment. The Central Environmental Authority (CEA) says banning plastic bottles is impractical. Therefore, it proposes that consumers who purchase 750 ml plastic bottles must keep a monetary recycling deposit. Several related products have already been banned. The reason many of these polythene and plastic products are banned is because they are manufactured materials that have eco-friendly and easily biodegradable alternatives.
