This week Kenya became the latest African nation to ban plastic bags



It is estimated that Kenya uses 24 million plastic bags every month, half of which are poorly disposed of and end up in roadsides and illegally made dumping sites.  However, just this week Kenya became the latest African nation to ban plastic bags, which applies to product, import and use.

It's a huge step for Kenya to curb plastic pollution, the UN Environment estimates that 100 million plastic bags are handed out every year in Kenya by supermarkets alone. (source)
