Following the ban on using plastic bags in Islamabad, the local city administration has vowed to make the capital plastic bag free in 45 days.
In order to help the government, the German Embassy in Islamabad is handing out non-plastic bags to everyone.
The staff of the German Embassy visited the schools, markets, and parking lots to distribute cloth bags among the masses. A tweet by APP shows several pictures of the German Embassy’s staff distributing the bags in Islamabad.
“After the ban of plastic bags entered into force in #Islamabad, we distributed cloth bags today at a Government school, Aabpara market & Blue Area. Important to raise people’s awareness of #avoidPlastic for the sake of our environment! #Reuse is the only solution,” reads the tweet shared by the state-owned press agency.
