Jamaica bans single-use plastic from 2019

Kingston. In order to tackle Jamaica's plastic problem, the government has imposed a complete ban on single-use plastic from 2019. The ban applies to the import, manufacture, sale and use of typical single-use plastic products. This includes, for example, plastic bags, polystyrene and plastic straws.

"Jamaica is flooded with all forms of plastic."

Daryl Vaz is the Jamaican Minister of Economic Growth and has been instrumental in the rapid introduction of the single-use plastic ban in Jamaica. He said at the crucial press conference that the ban was a necessary measure as Jamaica is awash with plastic waste.
It remains to be seen how the people of Jamaica will react to this timely change from the first day of the new year.
