Corporates and manufactures have been urged to come up with environment-friendly materials such as sisal, bamboo and hyacinth, in a bid to assist the government in fighting the plastic menace in the country.

Speaking during the launch of Safaricom’s eco-friendly re-usable bags at the Midland hotel in Nakuru, the Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources, Prof. Judi Wakhungu noted that, the launch of the re-usable bags was in line with the commitment to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12, which calls for responsible consumption and production.

Noting that the Government will enforce the plastic paper bag ban from August 27th, 2017, Prof.  Wakhungu urged more companies to invest in the production of alternative bags because protecting the environment was not solely the role of the government.
