Mozambique makes 35 Africa countries to ban single use plastic

Greenpeace posted this today and provided a run down on the other 34 countries. https://www.greenpeace.org/africa/en/blogs/11156/34-plastic-bans-in-africa

quote, “Out of 54 states, 34 have either passed a law banning plastics and implemented it or have passed a law with the intention of implementation. Of those, 16 have totally banned plastic bags or have done so partially without yet introducing regulations to enforce the bans. Compared to the rest of the world, the continent is seemingly doing a great job, but let’s look at the reality of plastic bans in Africa.”

Sad part is that in US, local cities are making these decisions, not the federal government as they should.
