Bulletin june 2007

Worried about the ban on polythene bags? Do not despair….! Recently Government of Uganda banned buveera (polythene bags) of not more than 30microns effective July 1, 2007 but with a grace period of up to September 2007 to allow traders clear their existing stocks. Many people may think it is impossible to live without the ‘bag beast’… probably having grown up using them. For inspiration, other parts of the world have since taken the bold step to stop using these bags, and are already sharing dividends.
