BAN SACHET/PLASTIC "PURE WATER" PRODUCTION

http://www.facebook.com/groups.php?ref=sb#/group.php?gid=

Those who visit many African countries especially Nigeria and Ghana may have noticed that the continent will soon be facing great environmental problems caused by oversights and negligences, Some of these problems are what may be solved with correct legislations and regulations For example in West Africa we are having a new kind of litter:trasparent plastic bags used primarily for drinking water, known as "pure water sachets.

"The NAFDAC in Nigeria is doing great jobs in regulation the qualities of these products but who is defending the environment from our 'unfortunate cultural norm and common behavior ?; disposal of anything at anyplace we are done with it.They block all the sewage lines in the cities and have started to cause some problems to farmers in many areas.

Almost all these plastics are not biodegradable and we know how dangerously they are destroyed at worst...by burning.

"PURE WATER " MAY HAVE SOLVED SOME PROBLEMS BUT IT IS CREATING SOME DANGEROUS ONES THAT MAY BE AVOIDED OR REGULATED "Therefor we call for its ban by the authorities.

I strongly support this campaign. But then, what alternative do we have to replace sachet water?

Silas said...

The ban can be achieved creditably only when the governments of the concerned countries are able to provide potable water and paying jobs for their citizens otherwise the ban will be more disasterous than its currently highlighted dangers as the people will die of thirst and frostration

In as much as I support the cleaning up initiative...and the using easily disposable bags for pure water initiative...I must say I WILL MISS PURE WATER.....


This like gala is just an epitome of the heart of Nigeria to me...

That was something I had written down to talk about upon my return from Nigeria: all those empty sachets of water that I saw littering the roads. It does not seem like we have the social infrastructure in place to implement a recycling program, and I can't think of an environmentally sound alternative.

banning pure water sound's easy, but have you thought of the adverse effect on the poor masses. we should be talking of ways of setting up as many recycling plants as possible, thereby creating more jobs. banning it mean's increase in unemployment levels,armed robbery, and water borne diseases.
