Plastic pollution is caused by the accumulation of plastic waste in the environment. Since the usage of food packaging from most restaurant in Malaysia are basically plastic based from plastic food container, polystyrene, and plastic wrapper. This type of packaging are harming the environment since long time ago.

Since Malaysia already done the non-plastic bag day every Saturday which customer need to pay 20 cent for their plastic on that day, how about same method being applied on plastic container issue. Customer need to pay extra 20 cent on take-away order for every meal they ordered. This method somehow encourage people to bring their own container at the same time reduce the amount of plastic waste. Together we can combat plastic pollution.
