Armenia will ban single-use plastics: Minister

PanARMENIAN.Net - Single-use plastics will be banned nationwide, Minister of Nature Protection Erik Grigoryan told reporters on Tuesday, July 10.

“The process will launch in a community and will spread to the entire province, and after a while Armenia will join the countries that have banned single-use plastics,” Grigoryan said, according to Aysor.am.

According to him, this is a global trend, with a number of countries having already eliminated the use of disposable plastic.

“At the moment, we can’t impose a ban on the use of plastics altogether, but we are starting the process,” Grigoryan said.
