Plastic pollution is impacting our lives in a dramatic way. We encourage all initiatives to reduce or eliminate the consumption of single-use plastic.
A few months ago the municipality of Jbeil was the first in Lebanon to ban the use of plastic bags. These will have to be replaced by -environmentally friendly-biodegradable bags by the end of the year.
There has also been a #BalaPlastic campaign led by local NGOs to encourage establishments to ban all single-use plastic straws and bottles.
Because of our terrible waste management, it’s important to remember that most of the waste we throw comes right back at us through water and air pollution.
Local french newspaper L’Orient-Le Jour has just launched a campaign against the use of plastic.
It’s time we all learn simple and good practices to fight against pollution.
Take action and mobilise your shopkeepers and your city to say #MaBaddaPlastic !
