UK to Support Ghana in Plastic Waste Management

The British High Commissioner to Ghana, Mr Iain Walker has expressed the United Kingdom’s readiness to help Ghana address the plastic waste menace. The issue of plastic waste has taken a global dimension that calls for collaboration of all countries towards adopting innovative ways of replacing the use of plastics.

Mr Walker said this when he paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Madam Cecilia Dapaah, yesterday in Accra. The meeting sought to prioritise and strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries toward adopting sound policies and measures to address emerging global challenges.

The ambassador noted that 10 years ago, the world did not envisage the use of plastics as a novelty at that time, would now become a headache.

Mr Walker explained that the time had come for the world to innovate and produce re-usable bio-degradable materials to replace the use of plastic bags and bottles. He said some supermarkets in the United Kingdom (UK) had adopted the use of bio-degraded Banana leaves which is fast catching up with other shops and would assist the ministry to adopt the new measures.
