According to a statement given to Environment360 by the Australian High Commission, the Commission has been gradually reducing the use of single use plastics from its facility over the paste several months. The Commission officially banned single use plastic at its official events during the month of April, which coincides with the global holiday, Earth Day.
Examples of of single use plastics they have banned from official events include single use cups, individual water bottles and plastic cutlery.
To ensure proper implementation the Commission has created an events team responsible for sourcing and managing single use plastics. According to the statement all the staff at the High Commission welcome this initiative and are looking forward to finding new ways to decrease their environmental footprint and help to keep Ghana clean.
The British High Commission has also banned single use plastics from its facility and will roll out its implementation by the end of 2018.
