Thailand’s roadmap on Plastic Waste Management 2018-2030
According to the Roadmap on Plastic Waste Management 2018-2030, Thailand will phase out all plastics that degrade into fragments. In 2019, three plastic products were banned, which included plastic cap seals in water bottles, oxo-degradable plastics, and plastic microbeads. The Roadmap currently involves a private-public partnership ban on the use of plastic consisting of 33 state agencies and 43 private firms.
Grocery stores and shopping malls in Thailand have also stopped giving out plastic bags while the use of four other types of plastic will be banned by 2022, which will include plastic bags less than 36 microns in thickness, Styrofoam food boxes, plastic straws, and single-use plastic cups.
