Kenya bans use of plastic bags, attracts $38k fine for violators

Kenya has introduced a ban on plastic bags with some very harsh penalties for those who contravene it. Anyone found selling, manufacturing or carrying them could face fines of up to $38,000 or prison sentences of up to four years.


The ban that came into force Monday applies to the use, manufacture, and importation of plastics.

The ban does not include those producing plastic bags used for industrial purposes.
