During the afternoon commemoration of World Environment Day at Kololo Independence grounds, the Prime Minister of Uganda, Robinah Nabbanja, expressed her concern over the harmful impact of plastics on the environment.

She urged Ugandans to seek out local alternatives to plastics, which have proven to be very dangerous to the environment and ecosystem.

She warned that plastics not only destroy the environment, but they also produce chemicals that can enter the food chain, resulting in severe health complications.

To tackle this issue, Nabbanja suggested that paper bags and fabric bags could replace polythene bags (also known as Kavera) to protect the environment and reduce the adverse effects of climate change.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister stressed that the government is committed to creating awareness and educating the public about environmental conservation to promote the effective preservation of our environment.
