Egypt has started to adopt new plans to improve garbage recycling and also limit plastic pollution.

In April, Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association (HEPCA) said that the Red Sea governor announced banning the use of single-use plastic starting June 1 due to its serious environmental damages.

HEPCA said that the use of disposable plastic causes the death of hundreds of thousands of living creatures in the world.

The decision comes to "protect the threatened and endangered species which are severely affected by ingestion, starvation, suffocation, drowning, entanglement and toxicity from plastic remains, which affects the human health accordingly," HEPCA explained.

The governorate is working to prevent factories from producing or distributing plastic bags in the city, according to HEPCA.
