TRIBUNBATAM.id - Mayor of Batam, Muhammad Rudi, asked Batam City residents to start reducing the use of disposable plastics.

Thus reducing the use of plastic bottles.
"It took 600 years to become one with the soil. That was the expert's explanation to me yesterday. Then slowly we returned to 50 years ago, we no longer use plastic, we use glass again, use glass for drinking," said Rudi Wednesday (11/20) / 2019).
He also discourse to make a policy of providing glass and non-plastic containers that can be used by employees in Batam City Government.
