The Bahraini authorities plan to ink a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Indonesian Embassy to reduce plastic consumption in the Kingdom. As per the MoU, efforts will be on to popularise the use of Sain Bags to contain the excess use of plastic bags. Speaking to Tribune, Hardiyono Kurniawan, First Secretary for Economic Affairs at the Indonesian Embassy said, “The embassy plans to introduce Sain Bags manufactured by an Omani-Indonesian company.
“These eco-friendly bags are wholly made in Indonesia. “The company was started in January 2018 by Indonesian PT Saesha Global and Omani Sain Bags, with an aim to reduce the waste created by plastic bags. “Sain Bags is extremely passionate about living greener, looking to make a difference, determined to fill the gap for organic, fully compostable bags promoting themselves in a greener, more eco-friendly way.” “At the moment, the company is pleased and proud to introduce the 100 per cent biodegradable and compostable bag to the MENA region. The company hopes that soon they will see the end of plastic as more eco-conscious consumers carry around biodegradable and compostable bags.”
