AMMAN — The Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA), in coordination with the international organisation EcoPeace, on Monday launched a campaign titled “Aqaba: the First Plastic-Free City”. 

The campaign is part of the authority’s efforts to promote a culture of using eco-friendly paper and tote bags, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. ASEZA began distributing paper bags to local bakeries as a first step. 

Deputy Chief commissioner of ASEZA Hamzeh Al Hajj Hassan noted that the campaign — which is the first in the Kingdom — will last for three months, and will be continued by expanding the distribution of green bags to all markets in Aqaba.‘aqaba-first-plastic-free-city’-campaign
