African countries such as Kenya, Ivory Coast, Tanzania and others have outlawed the use of petroleum-based single and short-term use plastic items.

South Africa is listed among the top 15 countries in the global mismanagement of plastic waste and continuation of this practice is expected to increase the overall plastic waste in the country by 2% in 2025.


The term “bio based” signifies whether the carbon content in any substance comes from organic sources, such as plants and agricultural sources, rather than fossil sources such as oil and coal.
