Tackling Pakistan's rivers of waste

Excessive pollution in Lahore has caused local government to consider putting a ban on plastic bags.

    Plastic bags are often the cheapest way for shoppers to get their goods home.

    But they also litter the streets and clog rivers in the Pakistani city of Lahore.

    The pollution there is so bad that the local government is considering implementing a bag ban.
