  • Like Living In Hell: Delhi Slum Drowning In Plastic Waste

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. More specifically, Mr. Guterres stated: "Our world is swamped by harmful plastic waste".

There is no denying the negative impact plastic pollution is having on our environment, wildlife and humanity.

The celebration of World Environment Day started in 1974 with the goal of raising awareness, supporting action and driving change.

Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern.

Maharashtra has banned the use of plastic, but the Gujarat government is citing the probable loss of jobs to avoid such a measure. That's the equivalent of a garbage truck full of plastic every single minute.

While Kenya has introduced a total ban on plastic bags, leading supermarket chains in the United Kingdom have vowed to reduce plastic packaging.

Wednesday in Rwanda will be marked with a wide-range of activities centred on this year's theme: "Beat Plastic Pollution".

Greenpeace applauds companies that are beginning to eliminate single-use plastics from their shelves, like Countdown's announcement today that they are eliminating plastic straws, and several national retailers implementing plastic bag bans this year.

Volunteers collect plastic and other recyclable material at seaside in Mumbai, India, June 5, 2018.

It is estimated that over 20 million plastic bottles are littered in Scotland each year and that approximately 120,000 tonnes of plastic packaging waste is produced from households in Scotland each year, according to Zero Waste Scotland.

The Minister accordingly encouraged Nigerians to avoid disposing of waste plastic bags, pure water nylons and bottles indiscriminately in habitats, streams, canals, Rivers and sea. Prime Minister said the government is committed to the Paris Climate Agreement and will fulfil its commitment in reducing carbon emissions.

Reduction in the use of plastic and awareness on its recycling and re-use will be taken up in these 100 villages, which are recognised by the state's Rural Development Ministry as "rurban" areas.
