Plastic Bans

Bali Bans Plastic

From 1 January 2019, Bali’s Governor, Wayan Koster, has banned single-use plastics, including styrofoam, plastic bags and plastic straws.

As part of the UN’s Clean Seas program, the Indonesian government has pledged to invest $1 billion in reducing marine waste by 70% by 2025.

This is significant as Indonesia’s plastic waste accounts for 10% of global marine plastic pollution, making it the second largest plastic polluter in the world after China.
