Vanuatu แบนผ้าอ้อมเด็ก แก้ปัญหาขยะพลาสติก

SOS – EP3 Vanuatu แบนผ้าอ้อมเด็ก แก้ปัญหาขยะพลาสติก

A Pacific nation in peril bans nappies

The Guardian Weekly: 5 July 2019



ประเทศเล็ก ๆ นี้เป็นผู้นำในการต่อสู้กับขยะพลาสติก โดยได้มีการประกาศใช้มาตรการห้ามใช้ single-use plastic ที่เข้มข้นที่สุดในโลก และตอนนี้เชื่อว่าจะเป็นประเทศแรกที่ห้ามใช้ผ้าอ้อมเด็กแบบใช้แล้วทิ้ง ในตอนสิ้นปีนี้

champion nation ของกลุ่มประเทศที่ร่วมต่อสู้ปัญหา ocean and climate emergency challenges

disposable nappies contain plastic that take 100s years to degrade 

parents complain it will set women who take care 20000 babies back decades

the country is already suffering from climate and ecological emergency with rising sea levels and marine pollution 

the country has no choice

Vanuatu is safeguarding its future

eventually, plastics find their way into the water and the food chain and at the end of the day, Vanuatu end up consuming them

Vanuatu is very vocal about climate emergency because we are living it

it is affecting our food supply and our fish populations

they are looking into cotton alternatives for plastic nappies but it is a long road

last year’s plastic bag ban was already having an effect with less plastic waste on the streets

the research by Commonwealth Litter Programme (CLiP) organic waste and disposable nappies represent 3/4 of total weight of waste produced

Vanuatu does not have a lot of land – they have to take radical action

the ban on plastic bags, straws and polystyrene containers introduced in July 18 have an effect

a month after the ban 12% of household rubbish was plastic – only 2% plastic bags and other banned items

compared with 15-18 plastic in 2010 and 2014

in march Vanuatu banned other single-use plastic items including plates, cups, stirrers, food containers, egg cartons and flowers
