A shopper carries goods in cloth bags after leaving the medina in Meknes, Morocco. The most visible sign of the country’s green policy efforts are on the streets of the old medinas, in the vegetable shops, and in the large supermarkets of the big cities. In 2016, Morocco banned the sale, use, and production of plastic bags. Before the ban, Morocco used 3 billion plastic bags a year, making it the second largest consumer after the US, according to environmental groups. Image by Jackie Spinner. Morocco, 2017.
