Marsa Alam To Join In Efforts And Ban Plastic

Published

on

The astonishing Marsa Alam is joining in efforts to ban single-use plastic which gives us yet another reason to love the city!

General Ahmed Abdallah, Governor of the Red Sea governorate, has recently announced that plastic bags in Marsa Alam are too be soon banned, following in the same steps that were also recently taken in Hurghada.

This decision certainly comes in favor of the coastal town and is helping reserve its wondrous sea life, international tour operators are expected to benefit from this as well, not to mention that it will definitely raise the chances of Marsa Alam’s classification in ecotourism and marine conservation.

We have high hopes for this because we have Hurghada to look up to. So far, the ban has been applied to 90% of Hurghada’s areas and by the end of July, the city is expected to be completely plastic free!

As for Marsa Alam, General Abdallah said that the penalties and fines aren’t to be imposed immediately but instead, they will be applied gradually starting from August. This means that any space that doesn’t adhere to the ban could face the possibility of getting shut down.

The ban isn’t limited to restaurants only but also to shops, stores and plastic disposable tableware used in homes.

This aims at protecting the wildlife especially the endangered species and preserve the stunning marine life of Marsa Alam and other coastal areas.

Egypt will house Africa’s very first vertical forest in the New Administrative Capital, the forest will consist of three 30m by 30m cube-shaped apartment towers all covered in planted terraces.

According to a CNN report, the seven story-high buildings will be home for around 350 tress and 14 thousands shrubs of more than 100 species.

The vertical forest is designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, whom designs usually focus on including environmental implications in the hope of putting a limit to footprint. According to his website, the vertical forest scheme is a “project for the environmental survival of contemporary cities designed to promote the coexistence of architecture and nature in urban areas”.

The constructing of these three towers is set to be completed by 2023 and hopefully will be able to combat the side effects of pollution and help resolve the issue of climate change by covering the towers in greenery.

Stefano Boeri’s three cube-shaped vertical forest apartment blocks is a collaboration with Egyptian designer Shimaa Shalash, and also the Italian landscape architect Laura Gatti.

“There are many ways to make the city green, this vertical forest is a less expensive and faster way of dealing with climate change. The objective of the vertical forest is to limit pollution. These are small efforts, but they are very important. And making people plant trees is the best way to involve them.” Boeri said.
