Dominica is taking a major step in reducing plastic usage in the Caribbean.
This entire county is banning plastic, as part of plans to be the world’s first climate-resilient nation.
“Dominica prides itself as the ‘Nature Isle’. We must in every way deserve and reflect that designation,” he said during a budget address in July.
“The issue of solid waste management affects that perception and we continue to grapple with it.”
The ban comes into effect in January 2019.
