The 18th Quezon City Council recently enacted another milestone ordinance on environmental protection entitled “An Ordinance Prohibiting the Use of Polyethylene (Plastic) Advertisement and Propaganda Materials within the Territorial Jurisdiction of Quezon City which has gone through the process including public consultations and committee hearings.

This ordinance aims to challenge every candidate as well as businesses in adopting innovative measures to continue the substantial reduction of plastic wastes in QC.
