Musician Deborah Vanessa, popularly known as Sister Derby has called on the government to ban plastics in Ghana.

Sister Derby, who made an appearance on Celebrity Fanzone on GH One TV also called on Ghanaians to take up the responsibility of educating others on the negative effects of plastic use in society.

She stated: “if the government wanted to help, they would have planned towards banning plastics. And if we say plastics we are talking about single-use plastics, plastics that cannot be recycled. Talking about single-use plastics Rwanda has done it and Rwanda is one of the cleanest countries in the whole world.”

A whale recently died in southern Thailand after swallowing more than 80 plastic bags. An autopsy revealed 80 plastic bags weighing up to 8kg (18lb) in the creature’s stomach.

 “This plastic ménage is global, but in our own small way, we could help educate others. In my small way I use my social media platform,” the controversial musician stated.

Official figures estimate that only two per cent of the about 22,000 tonnes of plastic waste generated yearly in Ghana, is recycled.
