Kenya will soon ban the use of plastic straws used to drink sodas and milks that are distributed freely by shops and supermarkets to customers.

The country is on a roll: the announcement of the straws planned ban comes barely a week after the National Environment Management Agency (Nema) announced they will ban plastic bags by 30 April 2018, and has been encouraging plastic bottle manufactures to start up take back schemes across the country to deal with the plastic waste menace in the country. More at AllAfrica.
