The Environmental Management Agency has called on Manicaland residents and the business community to embrace eco-friendly alternative bags for waste disposal in a bid to fight wanton plastics. EMA Provincial Environmental Education and Publicity Officer Mrs. Alice Rutsvara said plastics have a seriously negative impact on the environment due to their resistance to decomposition and their emission of toxic gases when burnt. She added that the rate at which waste is being generated is outweighing that of refuse management therefore called on local authorities to gear up their waste management systems.
