Malawi bans thin plastic bags!

Malawi has reinstated a ban on thin plastics, including thin plastic bags. The government imposed the ban on thin plastic in 2015, but the move was overturned by Malawi's highest court after a number of plastic manufacturers in the in the southern-east African nation obtained an injunction. Now the Supreme Court of Malawi dismissed the appeal, so that with immediate effect the production of thin plastics under 60 microns in thickness in Malawi is illegal again. Companies who violate the ban face fines and the closure of their factories.
