Cameroon: Govt bans non-degradable plastic bags

Yaoundé, Cameroon (PANA) - Cameroonian Environment, Nature Protection and Sustainable Development Minister Hélé Pierre Saturday directed manufacturers, sellers and users of non-biodegradable plastic bags to stop using the product by 31 March 2014.

The directive follows the sensitization campaign against the use of non-biodegradable plastic bags launched in the country in August 2013.

The Minister said the production of degradable plastic bags can still be done in the same facilities used for non-biodegradable plastic bags, if only the manufacturers would add one additive to make the plastic degradable.
