Official plastics ban starts today

The ban on the use and distribution of single-use plastics, including styrofoam and petroleum-based food containers and cutlery is now in full effect.

This move sees Barbados joining a growing list of countries in the Caribbean and across the globe which have banned single-use plastics.

Government in an effort to sensitize the public and key stakeholders about the ban, has hosted a number of town hall meetings.

Minister of Maritime Affairs and the Blue Economy Kirk Humphrey had earlier made it clear there will be no further extensions beyond Monday, July 1st.
