BAN NON BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS
Ban the use of macro plastics that are non-biodegradable.
Introduce bio-degradeable alternatives to plastic bags and plastic products.
Tax and fine local industries that produce these kinds of plastics.
Create awareness of reuse and recycling of plastics in Kenya.
Create policies for local industries to recycle.
Create policies on clear and proper means of waste management.
Why is this important?
It is necessary that towards the Sustainable Development goals, we focus on sustaining our environment. Proper waste management is key in curbing pollution and ensuring sustainable environments for urban and rural development. Plastic bags and plastic products have become a menace in Kenya with cities like Nairobi experiencing floods due to blocked drainage by plastics. The pollution from burning of these products have further increased the effects of greenhouse gases. Banning use of non bio-degradable plastics is a necesaary step towards environmental sustainability.
How it will be delivered
This petition will be signed online through relevant social media platforms.
A physical petition will go around the cities through partnerships with relevant organisations.
