As you are aware, the ban on plastic bags came into effect yesterday. As a result, law abiding citizens have resorted to alternative means of carrying items and it has not been easy.

On social media, the excitement has reached fever pitch as Kenyans continue to showcase how the ban has transformed life.

Here are some sampled tweets.


Comedians have also been riding the wave of the new changes by creating humorous content. They include Timothy Kimani aka Njugush, Chipukeezy, and Henry Desagu, who have all individually come up with creative clips illustrating the full effect of the new law.

Check out the clips below:
