The use of plastic products has been part of human life and daily activities. Since plastic can be harmful to the environment, solutions are required to limit, reduce, and minimize the use of this material for sustaining environmental preservation. However, it is difficult to change an entrenched habit of using plastics in society. Establishment of law enforcement policies is among the alternatives to the problem to protect the environment from an increase in the amount of plastic waste. This paper was aimed at exploring issues revolving around the habit of using plastic materials amidst society and investigating the concept of law enforcement as a solution to limit and reduce the use of plastic. The data of this empirical juridical research were examined descriptively. According to the result, law enforcement was essential to ensure the sustainability of environmental preservation.
