Nepal | Government to ban single-use plastic products in area around Mount Everest starting in 2020

Nepal is banning single-use plastic on and around Mount Everest in a bid to cut down on the region's trash problem.


Nepalese authorities said they will ban plastic soft drink bottles and single-use plastics under 30 microns thick (0.0012 inches, or 0.03 millimeter) in the Khumbu region, which is home to Everest. The ban will prevent hikers from bringing the plastic goods in -- and stop shops from selling them.
