A floating community in Siem Reap adopting plastic free approach to combat pollution

A floating community in Tonle Sap Lake in Keo Por commune, Puok district of Siem Reap province is aware of environmental impact caused by plastic wastes – thanks to their participation in a campaign to clear the lake from plastic.

In an interview with journalists, Mr. Sea Sophal, the director of NGO2 Bamboo Shoot Foundation shared the positive behaviour change among over 300 families in the floating community, stressing that his foundation has launched the campaign.
