Bali rolls out ban on single-use plastics to chop ocean waste | AFP

Bali is rolling out a ban on plastic straws and bags to rid the holiday island of waste as Indonesia scales up efforts to tackle its trash problem. Millions of tourists are drawn to Bali every year, but the tourist hub has recently become a poster child for plastic pollution in the country. In a first for Indonesia, Bali announced a comprehensive ban on single-use plastics last year, but full implementation was in doubt until last week, when the Bali government prevailed in a supreme court challenge from the Indonesian Plastic Recycling Association (ADUPI).
