Bahrain may ban plastic bottles
Manama, April 9, 2008
Bahrain could soon implement a ban on plastic bottles and bags if a parliamentary proposal is approved.
Parliament chairman Khlaifa Al Dhahrani had originally proposed that the government start a gradual ban on plastic bottles and bags, but has now backed an amendment to have it banned completely.
An industry and commerce ministry representative said that they were distributing cloth bags to major supermarkerts so people could use them in place of plastic bags.-TradeArabia News Service
