The Kenyan government has recently effected a ban on plastic bags and many have complained of being inconvenienced as a result.

From the look of it, it is convenient, serves the purpose and is environmentally sustainable!

She appeared quite proud to walk around with it and one can understand why — it costs nothing and is proudly local.
