Tanzania bans plastic bags to clean up environment
A ban on plastic bags came into force in Tanzania on Saturday as part of an effort to tackle pollution in the East African country.
It follows similar steps by others in the region, including Kenya and Rwanda, to phase out non-biodegradable plastics.
The ban applies to the production, importation, sale and use of all single-use plastic bags. The government has also warned tourists to “surrender” any plastic bags before entering the country, which is home to popular attractions such as Mount Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti.
