SEE HOW STARBOARD IS PUSHING FOR REGULATIONS IN SINGLE-USE PLASTIC
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 plastics.
Starboard was deeply inspired by the Bye Bye Plastic Bag sisters – Isabel and Melati Wijsen – who managed to push for a ban on single-use plastic bags in Bali.
We want to see change happen and are currently lobbying our proposal for a tax on the use of plastic materials and the ban of several single-use plastics in Thailand. This proposal was first presented by Starboard’s environmental team at ASEAN.
Plastic bag fees have proven to reduce consumption by 80%, we would like to see a similar reduction with other products. Starboard sees single-use plastic as absolute unnecessary and is encouraging everyone to avoid them.
To achieve this we partner with the UN, chambers of commerce and ambassadors. We educate children at schools and decision-makers in business and politics. And we showcase that solutions are not so hard to find – we just need to commit to helping our planet recover as fast as possible.
