PNG’s East Sepik Province Goes Plastic-free

East Sepik’s executive council in Papua New Guinea has declared the province is going plastic-free.

The provincial administrator, Clement Malau, said they want to encourage local small businesses to promote the use of Sepik bilums.

Dr Malua said there is still a lot of work to be done but the provincial leaders believe they are taking the right approach to protecting the environment, while also engaging with those local people who make bilums and baskets.
