Fiji joins the growing list of Pacific nations which have opted to take this step to do so.
 
Marshall Islands, Vanuatu, Niue, Samoa and New Zealand's bans are already in effect while the Pacific's most populous nation, PNG, joins them at the end of next month, Radio New Zealand International reports.
 
In August 2017, Fiji introduced a 10 cent plastic bag levy to reduce plastic bag usage, and a year later the use of plastic bags had halved.
