Plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land: Mushahidullah

Group Marks Earth Day  March for Science to Tackle Plastic Pollution

First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. First celebrated in the United States in 1970, the idea of commemorating such a day was propounded by Gaylord Nelson, a USA senator from Wisconsin.


The city government plans to hold a series of forums at five universities on reducing the use of plastic, with Plastics Industry Development Center manager Hsu Hsiang-jui (許祥瑞) to launch the events at the University of Taipei on May 7. Through Social media, a people can now talk about environment and how to preserve in a variety of ways, like Sudarsan Pattnaik's lovely sand art. Others spread awareness by talking about the steps that need to be followed to save Earth. After then, the idea of clean environment and earth preservation turned into an global agenda. In a message issued here on Earth Day which is observed on April 22 every year, he said our lives depend on biological diversity, species and ecosystems are disappearing at an unsustainable rate and we humans are responsible, said a press release issued here. It was taken at the highest echelons of power, until 2016, when the countries around the world came together and agreed to a legally binding Climate Deal at the Paris Climate Conference. Earth Day is celebrated across the world, and the theme of Earth Day 2018 is to "End Plastic Pollution". The idea is to encourage people to cut down on their plastic consumption by paying a closer attention to the number of plastic items each person consumes annually and make a conscious effort to reduce the amount.
