CAIRO - 1 June 2019: Egypt's Foreign Ministry urged Saturday citizens planning to travel to Tanzania not to use any kinds of plastic bags, and abide by the Tanzanian government directions in this regard.

A plastic bag ban comes into force in Tanzania on Saturday, as Africa leads efforts to stem the tide of plastic blighting the farthest reaches of the globe, and depths of the ocean.

Tanzania is banning the importation, production, sale and use of plastic bags, becoming the 34th African country to implement such restrictions, according to the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP).
