Fathi said limiting the use of plastic bags does not harm the owners of plastic factories, rather, it will lead to replace the single use bags with more environment-friendly products.

In his speech, Fathi discussed the "Clean Shores" initiative, which was launched in February, and its aim in reducing the use of plastics in partnership with the United Nations Information Center in Cairo.
