Bali bans plastic bags

Graham Watson

24th September 2019

The island of Bali has banned plastic bags, responding to a remarkable campaign led by a 16 year-old girl.

It looks at the extent to which waste plastics were a problem on the island - and it is a beautiful place - I was there twenty-five years ago. However, these days single-use plastics have been banned and it is to be hoped that this will tackle the negative externalities associated with waste plastics.
