Seychelles free from plastic bags by 2016?
The Seychelles, a small island Developing State, at the forefront of the fight to save our Mother Earth and combat climate change yet Seychelles should stand envious of countries like Rwanda when it comes to plastic bags. In 2008, Rwanda got tough on plastic bags by deciding to effect a complete ban on the non-biodegradable polythene bags. The country is looking to ban other types of plastic and is even hinting at the possibility of become the world's first plastic free nation. Can we beat them to it? Like the Seychelles Constitution, the Constitution of Rwanda recognises the right to a clean and safe environment. A right that is recognised and enforceable under the law.
