Top 10 African Countries that have successfully banned/Limmited use of plastic bags

Kenya should be greatly commended for its environmental leadership role. It’s not only a great example but also it will inspire others, and help drive further commitments to the Clean Seas campaign.

The move to ban plastic was announced in kenya, barley three weeks after UN “declared war” on plastic,  mid-March this year.

Rwanda was one of the first countries in the world to ban plastic shopping bags in 2004.

After Rwanda’s move, Eritrea followed, with bans and/or taxations, in 2005, Tanzania in 2006, Uganda and Botswana in 2007, and Senegal in 2015. In 2013, Mauritania plastic bag manufacturers can be jailed for up to a year.
South Africa, Cameroon, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Ethiopia and Malawi are also among the African countries that have limited the use, adopted or announced bans on the use of plastic shopping bags.
