The use of plastic bags is banned in Islamabad from August 14, last year, while the provinces have also slapped the ban over use of polythene bags in line with the federal government’s initiative.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, in the month of August, State Minister for Climate Change Zartaj Gul had vowed to fully implement the ban on the use of the plastic bags.
She had said the ban would be implemented with the cooperation of the people including the civil society and the food chains.
