Abstract: It’s not that common that news emerging from Africa hogs the global media limelight. But that’s exactly what happened earlier this week when a 10-year-long effort by Kenya to introduce draconian measures with the aim of stemming the flow of plastic litter into the environment finally bore fruit, with a bang. Nairobi announced, in fact, that anyone caught producing, selling or even carrying plastic bags will fall foul of the law and can face imprisonment of up to four years, besides fines of up to $40,000. Kenya joins over 40 other countries which have totally or partly banned or taxed the use of plastic bags within their territory, including China, France and Italy.
