Single-Use Plastic to be Banned in Kenya by Start Of 1st June 2020

Kenya has been in the front line to curb the use of plastic, maintain cleaningness, and minding the effects of pollution on its environment. Pollution has been a big threat to Kenya and many other countries to their aquatic and wildlife, environment, and water.

In 2019 June 1st, His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, Issued a notice to end and ban all single-use plastic in Kenya. Most of the tourism industry players use such pollutants especially during their safaris making it hard to protect wildlife, beach, and aquatic life. This came in after cries from relevant environmental bodies, where concerns were raised on how to manage pollution in the City, Parks, Beach, and in Main areas like markets and other public areas in the country.

After one year, the notice comes to expiry, and implementation of the ban starts on 1st June 2020 as the country looks forward to responsible tourism and environmental management.


The Ministry of Tourism in Kenya issued a reminder on the start of single-use plastic items as seen in a letter they issued this week as below.
