Interview - 'Only India can help itself combat pollution'

World Environment Day 2018 India is the global host this year and the theme is Beat Plastic Pollution

The study, billed as the most comprehensive review of government action to curb single-use plastics, said up to 5 trillion plastic bags were used worldwide each year.

Implemented by the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) with cooperation from all personnel under MoD, the initiative was launched by Minister of Development Dato Seri Paduka Awang Haji Suhaimi bin Haji Gafar.

The World Environment Day is a day for people to make their contribution to saving the Earth. When you look further towards the year 2030, the plastic production is thought to rise by about six hundred and nineteen million tonnes.

We all are on the cutting edge of a global plastic calamity.

"While we don't have figures for their use here, what we do know is that plastic straws are nearly impossible to recycle because they of their size and lightness".

"Our first danger is that of climate change".

He said that India is taking every action to fulfil its commitment and goal under the PA and SDGs.


Most at a minimum have categories for burnable, unburnable, recyclable and plastics, with many also requiring people to separate out cardboard and different types of plastic.

The civic bodies and district administration took out campaign for preventing sale, manufacturing of plastic bags.

Scotland has committed to phase out the use of non-recyclable plastics and is now designing a deposit return scheme for drinks packaging that could see recycling rates of more than 90%, Zero Waste Scotland said.

"We have come so far with our recycling capabilities, so when it's not possible to reduce or reuse plastic we ask everyone to put their used plastic bottles and food packing into the relevant recycling bin where they can".

"Plastic now threatens to become a menace to humanity". In accordance, this year's theme is "Beating Plastic Pollution", for which we are exploring green alternatives to reduce the usage of plastics across all our offices, dealers and service networks. The theme of Wednesday 2018 is Beat Plastic Pollution. Many of these plastics also end up in rivers and oceans and thus endangering our aquatic life.

A Foodstuffs spokeswoman said it would also work with industry partners to help develop domestic markets for recovered plastics.

During the awareness campaign, raising stint environmental activists expressed their views on plastic becoming an environmental hazard in both the rural and urban areas of Pakistan. Plastic bags don't biodegrade, they photodegrade i.e. breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits contaminating soil and waterways and entering the food web when animals accidentally ingest them.
