Let’s protect our planet : Lagos bans non-biodegradable plastics

Starting from January 21, the State of Lagos has made a significant decision to protect our environment: it has banned the use and distribution of non-biodegradable plastics, such as polystyrene. This rule has an immediate effect, meaning it is enforced right away.

Why this decision? The authorities in Lagos want to ensure that the state’s water channels are no longer blocked by these waste materials. Imagine if water couldn’t flow freely because of plastic; it could cause problems for everyone.

If companies don’t follow this rule, they will have to pay fines. It may seem strict, but cleaning up plastics already costs a lot of money every day. The authorities want to put an end to this expense and protect our beautiful nature.

What’s great is that the residents of the state are encouraged to help too. They are urged not to use disposable plastics. It’s a small action that can make a big difference for our planet. It shows that even the little things we do can help protect our home, Earth.
