The usage of single-use plastic bags will gradually be prohibited in Georgia starting next month, Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze stated today.
PM Bakhtadze stated that the step will help the country on its path towards a greener economy.
The world has started a war against plastic, which pollutes the environment the most. We are also taking steps to reduce negative impact on nature,” Bakhtadze stated.
He said that the pollution of the environment with plastic bags is one of the most severe problems in Georgia.
Degradation of plastic bags requires more than hundred years and they cause serious damage to nature.
