According to foreign media reports, Kenya implemented a new law on the 28th to prohibit the sale, production or use of plastic bags. Violators can be fined up to US $38000 or imprisoned for 4 years, which can be called the world’s strictest “plastic prohibition order”.
It is reported that it took Kenya’s parliament 10 years to pass the law. It is reported that passengers to Kenya cannot bring plastic bags into the country. However, the producers opposed the ban and believed that the new law forced 176 manufacturers to close down, leaving 60000 people unemployed, because Kenya is an important plastic exporter in Africa.
In addition to Kenya, France, Italy and other more than 40 countries have adopted measures such as prohibition, partial prohibition or tax on the use of plastic bags.
Sea garbage expert Al Haber said that if humans continue to use plastic bags, there will be more plastic bags in the sea than fish before 2050. It takes 500 to 1000 years for plastic bags to decompose and enter the human food chain through fish and other animals.
