MINISTER OF MARITIME AFFAIRS AND BLUE ECONOMY HINTS DEATH KNELL FOR STYROFOAM LIKE GRENADA?
A Barbadian Cabinet Minister may be suggesting styrofoam will be a thing of the past like what a CARICOM neighbour did recently.
From the beginning of September, Grenada made the use or importation of styrofoam as an illegal activity.
For almost two years now, the Future Centre Trust has been seeking to do like the UK and Hawaii and ban plastic bags at supermarkets across the country, resistance has not only come from manufacturers and retailers but consumers as well.
However the use of reusable shopping bags has been on the rise with outlets like Massy, the People’s Market, as well as Collins Pharmacy among others providing the commodity at a reasonable fee.
