The Kenyan government has recently effected a ban on plastic bags and many have complained of being inconvenienced as a result.
For a young school girl, however, it is something she is taking in her stride.
She was pictured this week at a local supermarket carrying a bag improvised from dried banana tree bark.
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.
Under the current ban, producing, selling or using plastic bans could result in hefty fines or imprisonment of up to four years.
The girl sure knows how to be practical while staying within the confines of the law. Kudos to her.
