Polythene bags!

For a long period of time Uganda has wanted to ban use of polythene bags as a way to keep the city clean and answer the environmentalist call to protect our planet.

It is almost a decade now and no conclusive action has been taken. Why? Could it be that we benefit from the industries producing these bags. Well definitely the answer is yes. Could we look at it in another angle. Probably it’s more than just  making the city dirty. Think of the taxes the government gets from the industry, the people employed and the convenience of use with these polythene bags. The alternative (paper bags!); I haven’t planted a tree in the past 15 years and i guess even the top leaders have done it at a ceremony (because it is part of the agenda).

We could look at it this. First let’s improve disposal of these polythene bags. More garbage sites, waste segregation. By the waySlum Soccer in Kenya your right it is recyclable. It is not time to talk about the PET bottles (water, soda packages). The polythene bag is 100% recyclable. If we can improve the way we handle, use, and dispose the polythene bags it could give us a better socioeconomic option for the polythene bags.
