Disposable Nappies

Vanuatu aims to ban disposable nappies by end of year

The Vanuatu Daily Post reported the government was holding nationwide consultations about the proposal, which would follow earlier moves to ban single-use plastics and styrofoam products.

Government spokesperson Rontextstar Mogregor said officials were looking at an implementation date of 31 December.

He said a team had travelled to Malua Bay on Malekula to consult with communities there.
