  • India Has Set Example By Committing To Beat Plastic Pollution UN

This year, India is the global host of the Wednesday in collaboration with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) with "Beat Plastic Pollution" as its theme.

In India, plastic has been found inside dead cows while a whale in Thailand died after consuming waste bags.

It said the celebration would afford stakeholders the opportunity to consider how they could make changes in their everyday lives to reduce the heavy burden of plastic pollution on the natural and human environment. Gujarat has no significant short- or long-term plan yet to "beat plastic pollution".

The walk, which was part of the ongoing 2018 National Environment Week, was organised by Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) in partnership with the Ministry of Environment with the aim to raise awareness and encourage the general public to join the effort to address plastic pollution. "These disposable plastics are known as "single use" plastics".

Most of this plastic garbage clogging waterways and landfill is single-use items like straws, bags and cutlery.

Saidu Mohammed, the NNPC helmsman said the new environment policy would enable the corporation to effectively manage waste streams generated during its operations by using the best available technology to ensure that the people and environment are protected.

State Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said a comprehensive scheme would be prepared to replace the plastic goods in the state, especially the polythene bags.
