Pacific Leads the Way in Banning Single-Use Plastic

Single-use plastic is posing a serious threat to our climate. Not only is it damaging the health of the world’s oceans, but its production also causes significant emissions of harmful greenhouse gases into our atmosphere. 

That is why the Pacific is taking the lead in reducing the use of single-use plastic. 

So far, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Niue and Fiji have all announced plans to ban single-use plastic bags.

And Palau has become the first country in the world to change its immigration laws — on arrival, visitors must now pledge to help take care of the environment and not litter. 

Tackling climate change means tackling single-use plastic.
