The Kingdom of Cambodia is trying to minimise single-use plastic in the country. The government is working hard to attain this goal. It is equally supported by private organisations.
In this tremendous effort, two Cambodian brands are raising awareness about single-use plastics in Cambodia and around the world. Many people are noticing and being inspired by their activities and efforts.
1.The #ONESTEPNOPLASTIC campaign by All Dreams Cambodia
The #ONESTEPNOPLASTIC campaign will run for six months, with each clean-up effort taking place in a different city. Following successful events in Kep on July 31, Siem Reap on August 27, and Kratie on September 17, it will take place in Phnom Penh on October 22, Battambang on November 15, and will conclude on December 8, 2022, in the capital, at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, as part of the RUPP Free Plastics event.
Plastic trash is one of the most important concerns that we as a species face. Petroleum-based plastics pollute our food, water, and air, all of which are necessary for survival. To combat plastic pollution in Cambodia and promote the kingdom as a sustainable and appealing tourism destination, All Dreams Cambodia and Tos Yerng launched the #ONESTEPNOPLASTIC campaign in July 2022.
Plastic affects our endocrine system, never biodegrades, and is thought to be the root cause of a wide range of disorders, including cancer and infertility. The #ONESTEPNOPLASTIC campaign aims to provide information and solutions.
Participate in the #ONESTEPNOPLASTIC campaign in Phnom Penh on October 22nd.
Location :The Elysee, Koh Pich Street, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The campaign will start at 07:15 am and end at 3 pm.

Jaya House Hotels announced yesterday on its Linked In page,
“Jaya House Hotels has been invited to speak at the 16TH UNWTO ASIA/PACIFIC EXECUTIVE TRAINING PROGRAMME ON TOURISM POLICY AND STRATEGY in Seoul, Korea.”
The Jaya House Hotels team is participating as part of its commitment to the United Nations and their efforts to reduce the mountains of plastic being used in the tourism industry.
Jaya House, a #SingleUsePlastic-free hotel since 2016, will show how simple it is to take the initial steps toward becoming a more plastic-free property in Seoul. The team’s personal expertise, explanations, and examples will help a larger audience.
“We believe that the world is now more than ready for a concentrated effort to reduce #singleUsePlastic in our industry. In fact, it may already be demanding dramatic change and voting with its dollars.”
Christian de Boer, Managing Director of Jaya House Hotels, is a supporter of #SingleUsePlastic-free and is striving to eliminate the usage of plastic in the tourism industry.
During Covid19, Jaya House Hotels, Mulberry Boutique Hotel, and Treeline Urban Resort donated approximately 25000 plastic-free meals in Siem Reap. Jaya House Hotel also planted hundreds of trees as part of its environmental effort.
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
