Ban on plastic use should start from every house, says Karimnagar Collector

Like Living In Hell: Delhi Slum Drowning In Plastic Waste

Ogundipe said: "Plastic pollution is one of the biggest environmental concerns facing us today and this has constituted a global problem".

"He said: "'#BeatPlasticPollution' is the motto of this year's World Environment Day.

Greenpeace is calling on the New Zealand Government to enact a plastic pollution strategy, that starts with a comprehensive ban on plastic bags and moves into eliminating other avoidable single-use plastics, like straws, cutlery and stir sticks, and then set up nationwide container deposit scheme to ensure better collection with drink bottles. However, it should not have had to come to this, as every resident of every country should consider it his/her duty to heed the UN's appeal to "reject single-use plastics" and "refuse what you can't re-use".

Leones said this should serve as a "wake up call" for the Philippines to reduce its plastic consumption.

The DENR said it will continue to encourage industries to get involved in environmental efforts through programs that increase recovery of packaging materials, which end up in dumps and oceans. According to official data, about 25,000 tonnes of plastic waste is generated every year in India and of this, only 60 per cent is recycled. On this World Environment Day, let's take responsibility for our actions which cause any form of pollution.

"These mainly find their ways into the water bodies disintegrating to micro-plastic which are consumed by aquatic animals and ultimately kills them or are transferred into the food chain".

Minister of State for Environment Mahesh Sharma said that while Rs 350 crore was spent last year, this year Rs 650 crore was send to states under the environment protection programme.

On Twitter, Guterres pledged to abolish the use of plastic bottles in his office, and he did that starting on Monday, removing all plastic bottles from his office, conference rooms and Department for Public Information.

"At one month post launching this initiative, we saw a drop in the dry waste accumulation from 190 kgs to 100 kgs".

The march, organized by the ministry of environment through the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) is part of activities of the 2018 national environment week and World Environment Day due on June 5.

Did you know that globally, we dump around eight million tonnes of plastics into the sea every year?

A ban on disposable plastics in New Delhi, for instance, has had only limited impact "because of poor enforcement", the report said. These include declining fish catches, warming ocean temperatures, and vanishing habitats", he said adding that "plastic pollution is now entering into our food chain.

On the 17th June, South Africa will also join our global partners in recognising and celebrating the World Day to Combat Desertification.
