Top official orders ban on single-use plastic in Home Ministry building


Home Minister Tjahjo Kumolo has begun a battle against plastic waste, ordering all officials under the ministry, including canteens in the building in Central Jakarta, to refrain from using single-use water bottles, cups and straws. He made the call for all officials within the Home Ministry and the National Border Management Agency (BNPP) on Jl. Medan Merdeka Utara to support the eco-friendly movement on Monday.

"Starting today, let's stop drinking water in [single-use plastic bottles] and stop using plastic straws both during official events and every day at the office," Tjahjo said as quoted by Antara. The minister also asked his staff to install posters and banners around the ministry to promote the green movement."Counters that sell food within the office compound also have to stop using plastic. They have to serve water with a glass," he said.

The movement to reduce plastic waste in the country has gained more attention following the recent discovery of 5.9 kilograms of garbage inside the stomach of a dead sperm whale on Kapota Island, Southeast Sulawesi.
