Kenya plastic bag ban comes into force after years of delaysPosted on August 29, 2017 by DrRossH in General, Plastic Limiting Regulations
The ban is seen as one of the world’s toughest, with fines of up to $40,000, or four years in prison
Piles of waste plastic bags are a common site across Kenya, as in many African countries.
Animals often graze on the rubbish and the United Nations’ Environment Programme says huge amounts of polythene bags are pulled out of livestock in Nairobi’s abattoirs – as many as 20 bags per cow – raising fears of plastic contamination in beef.
Why is Australia also facing years of delay? Such an easy thing to do.
