Ban the Plastic

20130525_103035

One hundred million plastic bags are handed out in shops in Kenya every year. And many, many, many of them end up along the roadside, in the rivers, across the fields, in trash heaps near homes. The majority of Kenyans do not have trash removal services, and many of these bags are too flimsy to reuse. A lot of trash gets tossed wherever, and it quickly becomes clear that plastic does not disintegrate for a long, long time.

This weekend, I was delighted to see this large group of school children protesting the environmental hazard of all of these plastic bags -- and picking up trash along the roadside.  I hope for more of this for this beautiful land!
