MANILA, Philippines — The environmental group Bangon Kalikasan Movement urged President Rodrigo Duterte to push his idea of issuing an executive order (EO) banning single-use plastics (SUPs) after the President mentioned in a Cabinet meeting the possibility of banning SUPs.

The group’s president, Joey Papa, said the EO could activate the Ecology Center System of Republic Act No. 9003, or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, that would ban SUPs. —Mariejo S. Ramos
