Kenya’s fight against Plastic Pollution
Kenya has emerged as a leader in fighting against plastic pollution among African countries. It became the first country in East Africa to adhere to the limit of using single-use plastics and has even signed initiatives like ‘Clean Seas’ to prevent plastic litter from being dumped into marine and freshwater bodies.
Kenya’s efforts were reflected in their policymaking as they banned the use of plastic bottles, cups, and other plastic cutlery from its national parks and biosphere reserve.
Such efforts are really needed when the plastic menace is becoming one of the major problems for the earth. Not only limited use but control over the production of plastic is also required.
