Dubai Set to Ban Single-Use Plastic Bags in Two Years

Dubai plans to impose a charge on single-use plastic bags with the aim of phasing them out in two years as part of efforts to reduce environmental footprint.

A charge of 25 fils ($0.07) will be levied on single-use plastic bags in all stores, including restaurants, pharmacies and e-commerce deliveries, according to a statement. It will take effect on July 1.
