Chile will become the first country in Latin America to ban the use of plastic bags

Starting August 3, Chile will be the first country in Latin America to prohibit the use of plastic bags in commerce , a measure that corresponds to the last stage of the “Chao plastic bags” law that was implemented in 2018. This law affects micro, small and medium-sized companies. Data shows that prior to the implementation of the law, two years ago, 3.4 billion plastic bags per year were used in Chile.
