Media: Indonesia’s plastic bag manufacturers reduce production
Inaplas targets sales growth rate of 6-7% for 2016, though the association expects the rate to remain close to 6% owing to the recent policy. In 2015, Inaplas members’ sales of plastic bags accounted for about 25% of Indonesia’s 4.7 million metric tons of plastic products.
In November, Morocco, the world’s second biggest plastic bag consumer, drafted a bill to ban the production, import, sale and distribution of plastic bags within the country in an attempt to eliminate plastic waste.
