UNAIR can contribute in plastic waste treatment

Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry few days ago implemented a policy regarding plastic bags. This policy has drawn various responses from many communities. One of the responses came from Ucu Martanto, S.IP., MA, a lecturer in Politics Department, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences Universitas Airlangga.
“This implemented policy is deemed too late as this plastic problem has been a big issue for too long,” said Ucu during interview at the Centre of Security and Welfare, Politics Department, FISIP UNAIR.
Eventhough being too late, this policy can persuade the public to avoid using plastic bags and use non-plastic shopping bags. But, to implement this policy successfully, the government needs supports from non-governmental organizations (LSM).
“To change people’s behavior, NGOs should educate people directly. To act (reduce plastic use), we should not depend the government. The communities should also contribute,” said the environmental politics expert.
