Plastic Legislation

Starboard is an advocate for the ocean and considers marine plastic to be its greatest offender. That is why we are pushing for better regulations on the irresponsible use of single-use plastic.

Starboard was deeply inspired by the Bye Bye Plastic Bag girls – Isabel and Melati – who managed to push for a ban single-use plastic bags in Bali.

We want to see change happen and are currently lobbying our proposal for a 2-baht bag fee on plastic bags in commercial stores in Thailand. This proposal was first presented by Starboard’s environmental team at ASEAN.

Plastic bag fees have proven to reduce the consumption by 80%. Starboard sees single-use plastic as absolute unnecessary and is encouraging everyone to avoid them.
