Uganda High Court condemns plastic bags in the name of human rights to a healthy environment 

 

Greenwatch sued in 2002 to ban poly bags. Ten years later, Greenwatch obtained an order from the High Court, stopping the manufacture, distribution and disposal of thin bags. ELAW helped provide scientific information to prove against the bags. Greenwatch then led a campaign with other civil society actors to implement the ban.
