Famous actors Nay Toe, Myint Myat, Yè Aung, and Wutt Hmone Shwe Yee came together to support a campaign to raise public awareness of plastic litter in the Bagan Archeological Zone.  

“Bagan is an invaluable cultural heritage area for the Myanmar people. We need to treasure, respect, and conserve it, especially because it is a popular tourist destination. Plastic litter is non-biodegradable and takes a long time to decompose. We were just helping a group that is ensuring that the ground of Bagan is free of plastic garbage. I believe our participation will help raise public awareness of the campaign,” said Nay Toe.

The campaign attracted a lot of attention from locals and tourists as the film stars roamed the streets distributing pamphlets outlining the danger of plastic waste and collecting trash.
