While Europe is only tentatively taking action against the flood of plastic articles, countries in Africa have taken drastic measures against disposable plastic bags, the most widespread form of plastic waste. Plastic waste pollution has since been recognized as one of the global most dangerous pollutants. It pollutes the oceans, threatens the marine environment and eventually enters the food chain as microplastics. Africa’s cities are drowning in plastic wastes. The bags are carried everywhere by the wind and end up on the trees and on the roads, rivers and lakes, in sewers and on beaches. Consequently, Africa’s uniquely beautiful landscapes, beaches and natural parks have been marred by the avalanche of plastic rubbish.
