Local bakeries will be banned from using plastic bags for packing hot bread within two months, CMC chairman Nasser Abdullah al-Kabbi said. The CMC chairman said the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning would provide bread outlets with new bags to protect health and environment. Al-Kaabi was responding to a discussion proposal made by Sheikha al-Jifairi, the sole woman member at the council, who said the CMC should follow up its previous recommendations about banning the bags used currently by bakeries. “The municipality informed us that new bags which are environment-friendly and not constituting health hazards will be available in a two-month period,” al-Kaabdi added.
