The 20 sen per plastic bag charged on consumers in Selangor should be used for environmental and wildlife protection, said the office of Selangor executive councillor Elizabeth Wong.

This is according to an understanding arrived between hypermarkets and Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism after the policy was practised every Saturday, said Adrian Yeo, the policy officer of Wong's office.

"What is in place by the ministry, who had an understanding with hypermarkets, that the 20 sen collected have to be used for wildlife protection and conservation project," he told Malaysiakini.
