Plastic bottles and plastic straws have been banned in Mombasa in a move that has brought together seven top hotels in the region.

Manages from the hotels relayed that their decision was informed by the need to reduce pollutants that make it to the sea.

The hotels have joined the Kenya Tourism Federation initiative dubbed the "Plastic Free East Africa Coast" in partnership with UN Environment and Eco-Tourism Kenya.
