RA Nature Protection Ministry is proposing to set the minimum price for the sale and realization of plastic bags at 100 AMD in order to reduce the number of their use.
In case this legislative package is adopted, this provision will enter into force starting from 1 July 2019.
According to the project authors, the project will establish favorable conditions in order to reduce plastic wastes, particularly, to reduce the use of plastic bags.
According to the statistical data, around 16 tons of plastic bags were imported into Armenia from 2013 to 2015, while 8.149 tons of plastic bags were produced locally.
