Ban on plastic bags enters into force in Armenia

From January 1, stores will no longer offer plastic bags. The ban applies to 50 micron bags. The sale is prohibited by law.

Before the law came into force, some businesses had already switched to alternative paper bags, and small manufacturers were already offering cloth bags.

From January 1, 2022, an administrative responsibility in the amount of 30 thousand drams is established for the use of plastic bags in trade centers. The next target is to ban the sale of plastic dishes.
