Guatemala impasse ban on plastic bags

Monday, September 23, 2019


Guatemala said it will ban single-use plastic bags and various disposable utensils, following in the footsteps of Panama, which this year became the first Central American country to adopt similar environmentally conscious measures.

The Guatemalan government said the public will have two years to find alternatives to the bags and various products such as plastic plates, cups and straws, Reuters reports.
