Plastic Soup: An End to Plastic Poly Bags

The pandemic and subsequent lockdowns over the past two years turned many of us into avid gardeners. An unwitting consequence was also a rise in the use of plastic poly bags to grow plants in, and thus, more plastic waste after the poly bags are done with. Horrified by the thought of this, Dr Jarina Mohd Jani, a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Science and Marine Environment at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT), has embarked on a project to teach people how to weave their own poly bags using leaves. In another episode of Plastic Soup, we explore how to get out of this plasticky goop, one leaf at a time.
