Abstract: The purpose of this research was to study the perceptions of people who come to use the services and entrepreneurs in the Warorot Market of Muang District in Chiang Mai Province. Relating to the government's initiative to use less plastic bag handles and seeking ideas on how to make it better or create new regulations to do so in the fresh market. Structured interviews were used to gather data from a sample of 142 service users and business owners at Warorot Market, including 100 service users and 42 business owners. Descriptive statistics like percentage, frequency, and mean were used to assess the results, and multiple regression was used to examine some demographic characteristics, demographics and knowledge about the initiative to limit the use of plastic bags the behavior of customers who come to use the service and business owners in the Warorot market is tied to the government sector's handling in terms of minimizing the usage of plastic bag handles. The findings revealed that 97.9 percent of those who came to utilize the service and business owners in Warorot Market are aware that plastic bags with handles have an adverse effect on the environment, and knowing that there is a campaign to reduce, accept, reduce, reduce the use of plastic bags with handles in Warorot Market accounted for 95.8 percent. Television and Facebook were the two awareness-raising mediums that increased the sample population's knowledge of the aforementioned policy the greatest. After the government started a campaign to reduce, accept, reduce, reduce the usage of plastic bags with handles in the fresh market, which is 2.13 bags per day, from 5.12 bags per day, people's habit of using plastic bags with handles daily decreased or a decline of 58.72%. The majority of these include reusing plastic bags with handles, taking cloth bags or baskets to the market, refusing to accept a plastic bag with handles, and placing many goods in a single plastic bag with handles while making a purchase. The policy of limiting and eliminating the usage of plastic bags in the fresh market was supported by 97.2 percent of respondents, who stated that the best method to do so was to develop environmentally suitable packaging to replace plastic bags with handles. Such as paper bags, biodegradable bags, thick plastic bags with handles being used and then being banned from use, laws prohibiting the use of plastic bags with handles, the expense of purchasing more plastic bags with handles, and the factory ceasing to make plastic bags, in that order. Therefore, if the methods for preventing and resolving environmental issues are used to create a policy to limit the use of plastic bags with handles through a voluntary method rather than through the use of economic or legal means, such as the collection of taxes or fees that are, polluter pays principle (Warangkana, 2012). This should lead to an effective campaign for a policy that limits the use of plastic handle bags in the fresh market and become a practicable habit to limit the use of plastic bags with handles in an acceptable way. The findings of the multiple regression analysis's hypothesis testing showed that two variables gender and beliefs about the effects of plastic bag handles on the environment were significant. This has the habit of considerably (0.05) lowering the use of plastic bags with handles. This is congruent with the opt-in method of exposing people to media and information from current sources of interest to them in order to sustain existing views (Klapper, 1960), particularly those who are aware of the problem of plastic trash and how it impacts the environment and marine life. In order to change people's habits and limit the use of plastic bags, the government should educate the public on the negative environmental effects of using plastic bags using proper communication channels, particularly television and Facebook.
