The average Malaysian uses 16.8kg of disposable plastic*, or 300 plastic bags every year. That’s a total of 9 billion bags, according to the Malaysian Plastic Manufacturers Association (MPMA).
When you bring a reusable bag, you’re playing a part in helping prevent this plastic waste from ending up in landfills or polluting our seas.
