How to help fight plastic pollution for World Environment Day

  • People have to act upon laws enacted on pollution, environment matters, says Union minister

"We want to foster a global movement where every individual, policy maker and business takes action against plastic pollution to protect our ecosystem", Qazilbash said.

Sade Nubi, a Senior Environmental Engineer with the Department of Works and Physical Planning, said that the event involved a walk for the environment and a presentation on beating plastic pollution on campus.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also urged people to pledge to "beat plastic pollution".

"Every year, 500 billion plastic bags are used around the world, 13 million tonnes of plastic leak into the ocean and 17 million barrels of oil are used on plastic production".

"And we want governments to fill the policy gaps, and ensure there are clear incentives for doing the right thing", the United Nations environment chief said. "India is the flawless place for that to happen!", Solheim said. He said, the motto of the Government is more crop per drop.

Modi also took to Twitter to greet the people. Beat plastic pollution. World Environment Day. "India is preparing to join the "Clean Seas Campaign" and make its contribution towards saving our oceans", he added.

He said, India have a robust National Biodiversity Strategy and with just 2.4 percent of the world's land area, India supports seven to eight percent of the recorded species diversity. Forest cover is increasing in the country. It is we all who must step in this initiative to play our part. He said, India will soon revive the Ganga, its most precious river.

US Policy Forcibly Separating Children from Parents Is Inhumane
Likewise, the Seattle Times' editorial board described the policy as "the very definition of inhumane". Krikorian said that Trump's policy to separate families is a byproduct of enforcing border laws.

"India is the fastest-growing economy in the world today". World Environment Day is the "people's day" for doing something to take care of the Earth.

Việt Nam has been making efforts in this regard; for example, bettering its capacity in sorting, collecting and treating plastic waste and improving public awareness on plastic use, Thành said.

Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan, UN Environment Director, industrialists, and many dignitaries participated in the program. He said, next year, UNEP will organise the United Nations environment assembly with a focus on sustainable lifestyles. It also promotes the role of the oceans and the importance of conserving and protecting the marine environment.

Speaking at this year's World Environment Day in Abuja, the CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele said the management of the CBN is "in the process of concluding the recycling of our polymer bank note wastes into everyday plastics uses such as flower pots, dustbins, etc".

"We're expecting this to be the most exciting and inspiring World Environment Day ever!", Solheim told PTI.

Every year, 91 countries, and hundreds of green awareness campaigns and organisations, including TGRC, come together to celebrate this significant day concerning our environment.
