The provincial government of Bali plans to require supermarkets in Bali to supply cloth or paper bags and abolish the use of plastic bags. BeritaBali.com says the elimination of plastic bags at supermarkets in Bali is part of the "Bali Green & Clean" campaign promoted by the island's administration.
Governor Made Mangku Pastika said he hoped this new policy would also be adopted by all of Bali's municipalities and regencies. An island-wide program of eliminating plastic bags would, in Pastika's view, both preserve the environment and help instill a higher regard for hygiene among the people of Bali.
Said Pastika: "It will create a green and clean culture. At the same time, by helping to create a green economy we will be adopting an environmental outlook."
Governor Pastika told the press that the provincial government is also planning to develop alternate energy sources, such as the introduction of solar energy at government offices. Pastika cited the solar energy program as concrete evidence of his government's commitment to reduce global warming.
