Ban on plastic bags in parks still to be implemented

THE Ministry of Environment and Tourism has confirmed that an amendment to the law restricting the use of plastic bags in national parks was approved last year, but the regulations are not yet being implemented.

The ministry has issued a statement in response to recent circulating information on the ban of plastic bags, and said this restriction implies that no single-use plastic bags will be allowed in the national parks of Namibia.

These regulations are not yet in effect as the ministry is still putting the necessary systems and measures in place before full implementation.
