Kenya's Plastic Nightmare & Fantasy vs Reality

August is near, and every Kenyan is panicking,

C’mon, this isn’t about the elections.
Remember the notice that was gazetted back in March stating that, starting August 28th, Kenya will go plastic bags free?

We’re now only a month away from it’s execution.

Turns out you are fed up with drainage systems getting blocked every time it rains leading to unnecessary floods, the millions of non-biogradable waste piling up at Dandora dump site, the hundreds of paper bags piling up at the bottom drawer of your kitchen cabinet, your constant hospitalizations from malaria disease…  I guess that’s why you went as far as signing that Avaaz Petition that drew  thousands of signatures.

And now, you can’t wait to see and be a part of a cleaner and greener future, or so you think.

#Nakumatt, Tuskys, Uchumi, Naivas and Ukwala---WHERE TO AND WHERE NOT TO SHOP

In the beginning, there was barter trade, and then came kiosks, later on-retail shops, and now, supermarkets.

They are deemed to be the most convenient form of shopping for they not only offer a hassle free shopping experience but also give one a chance to window shop, save money, accumulate reward points and at times, fill time.
But, everything that's good has its weak points.  Generally, one of the strongest weak points is the fact that cashiers have become too lazy to look for change hence opt to give shoppers change in form of sweets and PK chewing gums.
