KENYA-ENVIRONMENT-WASTE-POLLUTION-PLASTIC-BAN

A cow grazes next to plastic bags at the Ngong town dumping site, 30 kilometres southwest of Nairobi, on August 24, 2017. A ban on plastic bags came into force in Kenya on August 28, 217 in a bid to slow pollution, with offenders liable to jail time or hefty fines. The ban on the use, manufacture and importation of plastic carrier bags was carried through after the High Court threw out a challenge brought by importers who claim jobs will be lost and livelihoods threatened. In Kenya, road verges are commonly covered with discarded plastic bags and trees festooned with them, they block drains and are ingested by animals, including livestock such as cows and goats. / AFP PHOTO / SIMON MAINA (Photo credit should read SIMON MAINA/AFP via Getty Images)
