Earth Day 2024: Plastic pollution peril

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

This year’s Earth Day on 22 April aimed to shine a spotlight on the plastic pollution crisis.

Over 380 million tons of plastic are produced annually – 50% of which is for single-use purposes, while only 16% of plastics and plastic packaging are actually recycled.

Astro Awani’s Melisa Idris speaks to Hema Sulakshana Mahadevan from Greenpeace Malaysia and Wong Pui Yi from the C4 Center.
