Who we are?

Banlastic Egypt is a social enterprise based in Alexandria that tackles the plastic pollution problem since 2018. We aim to ban single-use plastic in Egypt by offering alternative products to single-use plastic, creating a base of aware customers through delivering workshops, training, beach cleanups, and various environmental events. We are also trying to connect with policymakers to support those efforts by the plastic ban laws.

  • It breaks down into small particles, entering our food chain.
  • It harms marine life by being ingested or tangled in.
  • By 2050, there will be more plastic in the sea than Fish. Sequentially, we aim to Ban single-use plastics in Egypt to contribute to global action towards the plastic catastrophe and the sustainable development goals of 2030.
