Plastic bags are banned in KENYA since September 2017. This is a brave step towards conservation of our planet by reducing the usage of at least one of the pollutants. Although people have mixed opinions ref the ban, they have no option but to observe it. I personally feel the masses must be first educated on the ill-effects of plastic usage and advised on alternatives which were prevalent in the plastic-less days.
