Beginning 2012, [ Bawal na ang plastic sa Antipolo ], Antipolo bans the use of plastic and styrofoam for merchants selling dry goods. This is per City Ordinance No. 2009-370. Antipolo City encourages the use of reusable environment-friendly bags instead. Time to bring back our lola’s old time bayong and basket for shopping. Big establishments like SM Masinag, and Shopwise Antipolo have been supporting the no plastic ordinance.
A fine of P500 pesos will be charged for first offense.
Muntinlupa and Pasig are two cities that also discourage the use of plastics.
