This is one of the new drastic measures announced by the Ministry of Environment under the Environment Manufacturers and Co-ordination Act general penalty, which provides that those found culpable will serve a term no shorter than one year or a fine of no less than Sh2 million.

Many have praised it as a step in the right direction while others have said it would hurt the economy as many businesses depend on polythene bags for carriage and packaging.
