Prince Harry is urging companies to help improve consumers’ recycling habits.
The Duke of Sussex and his pregnant wife Meghan Markle visited the Moroccan capital of Rabat on Wednesday, the final day of the couple’s royal visit to Morocco, and chatted about putting an end to single-use plastic water bottles.

Later, the couple praised a local market vendor for his use of sustainable materials instead of exotic skins to in the manufacturing of shoes, purses and other goods that were for sale.
“It’s really amazing not to use exotics like that, and instead use something sustainable that would otherwise go to waste,” Markle told a vendor. “But they still have a fashionable impact.”
The Duke and Duchess spent the morning at the National Museum of Jewellery in the Andalusian Gardens before walking through the streets looking at the local arts and handmade items.
