GOB Bans Single-use Plastic Bags, etc.

Wed 21 Mar 2018 — By the 22nd of April, 2019, businesses in Belize must phase out single-use plastic bags shopping bags, styrofoam cups and other containers, food utensils, and similar items. There are already biodegradable plant-based replacement products on the market.

This is very good news for anyone concerned with long-term effects on waste management, waterways, marine animals, and even the tourism industry.
