The island of Grenada has announced a significant new green initiative.
In an effort to ensure that its natural environment is protected and preserved for future generations, the country says it has implemented the new Non-Biodegradable Waste Control Act.
The act began with a ban on the importation of Styrofoam, effective September 1, 2018, which will be followed by sale sanctions on the substance effective March 1 and a complete embargo on its use a month later.
The act will also bar all single use plastics such as shopping bags, cutlery, plates, straws and cups by February 1, 2019.
