The Ghana Wildlife Society (GWS) is calling for the appropriate disposal of personal, protective equipment (PPE) among the public in order not to compound the country’s insanitary condition.

Conservation Education Officer of the GWS, Louisa Kabobah, observed a global surge in plastic pollution since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, calling for deliberate efforts to reduce the threat in the country.

“Plastics already engulf every aspect of our daily lives, and with the onset of COVID-19 and its ubiquitous nature, wearing of face masks, made mostly from disposable plastic material has become the new normal.”

“We advise that people use the fabric masks more instead of the disposables and for the other PPE, it’s advisable to dispose them properly into cover bins, so they do not end up polluting the environment and causing further public health concerns,” she urged.

Ms Kabobah was speaking in an interview with the Ghanaian Times ahead of the “Plastic Free July Campaign”, aimed at reducing plastic waste, the world over, in the month of July.

“Plastic Free July,” is a global movement that helps millions of people to make changes to minimise their single-used plastics consumption, in order to have cleaner streets, oceans, and communities.
