Commercial centres and malls in Oman are ploughing through 40 million plastic bags a year

According to the ESO, that number does not include the use of plastic bags in other sectors such as restaurants and retail outlets.

Plastic bags currently used for shopping, food preservation, and household needs contain up to 20 dangerous substances.

The ESO is working on introducing environment-friendly bags as the government plans on a complete ban in supermarkets.
