Bangladesh high court bans single-use plastic in coastal areas
The Bangladesh High court issued a ban on single-use plastic usage in Saint Martin Island and coastal areas. On January 6, this was issued on all the related government officials. It is up to the authorities to make sure coastal areas, restaurants, and other relevant franchises stop using one-time-use plastic products. These products include plastic straws, plates, and other utensils alike. The government authorities have the whole year to accomplish this task.
Even plastic bottles are banned in those areas. Furthermore, the court also banned polythene bags. The concerned government authorities are to strictly monitor its establishment throughout the year.
