Tanzania says goodbye to plastic bags
A total ban for the manufacture and use of plastic bags is in the offing in Tanzania, as the government finalizes the required legislation. Responsible for clogging drains and killing livestock, it is thought that plastic bags will be replaced by bags made by the local sisal industry, thus boosting both employment and the economy. When they come into effect, the new laws will prevent the manufacture, distribution, importation and use of all plastic carrier bags by shops and consumers alike. Similar measures have already been adopted in Rwanda, where they were put in place in 2008. It is hoped that Kenya, Uganda and Burundi will follow suit.
