BOX THOSE GRO­CERIES

Paper Boy - - Life/Style -

Kenya now has one of the world’s tough­est bans on plas­tic bags, with pun­ish­ment of up to four years in jail for mak­ing, sell­ing or im­port­ing them. The bags are blamed for clog­ging oceans and killing marine life, and Kenya joins 40 other coun­tries that have in­tro­duced taxes on them, or lim­ited or banned them. In 2015, Bri­tain in­tro­duced a 5-pence charge, lead­ing to a plunge of more than 80 per­cent in their use.
