MUIC Stores to Stop Giving Single-use Plastic Bags.

Due to the cooperation between the government and the private sector, there is now a new government policy ordering department stores and supermarkets to stop giving single-use plastic bags starting on January 1, 2020.

In observance of this new policy, the Energy and Environment Conservation Committee and Green Office Project of Mahidol University International College (MUIC) have a new project called “No Plastic Bags.”

Under this project, stores in MUIC will stop giving single-use plastic bags in every purchase starting on February 3, 2020.

In line with Mahidol University’s ecological strategy and government policies, this project is also MUIC’s way of creating awareness among students, faculty and staff of the serious harm that plastic waste brings to the environment. We hope that this project will serve as an opportunity for everyone to do their part in saving the environment.
