Another country has committed to banning plastic bags!
They have banned the manufacture and import of all plastic bags – both for commercial purposes and households. This will take into effect in the fall sometime – six months after the notice date.
Here is some other African countries that have banned plastic bags: Cameroon, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Mauritania and Malawi. So amazing that there are so many countries for setting the stage, and banning plastic bags.
Once people adjust to bringing their own bags, it would make no difference, other than helping the environment. So I think every country should do it!
