SL Sets to celebrate World Environmental Day

Taimur Nagar is one of many slums in Delhi and countless other cities struggling to cope with waste

Ghanaians were also urged to change their attitudes on how they use so many plastics to bag their items or for shopping, and use straw baskets, and also stop using plastic straws for drinking beverages, and segregate their waste right from their homes, offices, and schools. The projections being worked out now indicates that there will be a gradual increase in the global plastic production in the upcoming ten to fifteen years. In the last decade, the world has produced more plastic than we have in the last century.

It's estimated Coca-Cola produces 110-billion single use plastic bottles each year.

Around the world, 1 million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute, and every year, up to 5 trillion disposable plastic bags are used.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh said that celebration of World Environment Day was an opportunity to rededicate ourselves to the cause of protection of environment.

"These companies have drawn a line in the sand, pledging to do their bit to stem the tide of plastic waste and plastic pollution", Sage said. By doing so, severe environmental consequences can be prevented and the natural habitat will be liberated from plastics.

Highlighting the theme, "It Takes a Nation to Beat Plastic Pollution", the minister said that "with strong support from all parties, the initiative will succeed in raising public awareness in addressing the use and disposal of plastic bottles".

Marking the release of " Kaala ", the Bollywood superstar said that he can't wait to watch the Pa.Ranjith directorial. If the film collects Rs 280 crore more then it will secure a position on the list of 2018's commercial hit films.

However, Greenpeace warns that global corporations that have signed the "Beat Plastic Pollution" declaration today - including Coca-Cola, Unilever and Nestlé - are some of the top contributors to single-use plastic pollution worldwide and here in New Zealand. When you look further towards the year 2030, the plastic production is thought to rise by about six hundred and nineteen million tonnes.

When Parmar was asked if the Gujarat government planned to ban plastic, he said: "The issue needs careful consideration and we can not announce a plastic ban abruptly". Plastic in oceans is likely to outweigh fishes by 2050.

He commended India's commitment in overcoming the challenge of plastic pollution.

"It's clear that plastic waste has become an environmental catastrophe we can no longer ignore".

It was only yesterday when Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India will eliminate all single-use plastic in the country by 2022.

Less than a 10th of all the plastic ever made has been recycled, and governments should consider banning or taxing single-use bags or food containers to stem a tide of pollution, a United Nations report says.
