Plastic Bags and Entrepreneurship

This video is about a business being run in Kenya. So how does this relate to Lebanon?
The Lebanese use over 6 billion plastic bags annually, according to Waste Lb. "If tied together these bags would form a chain that is long enough to go around the world 37 times."
Last week, a company called Waste Lb started to sell reusable bags at Souk El Tayeb, a farmer's market in Beirut.

But what about all of those plastic bags that will continue to be used? Perhaps there is an aspiring entrepreneur somewhere in Lebanon who can replicate Evans Githinji's success in Kenya in turning plastic bags into field posts and support beams.
