Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on World Environment Day

India Has Set Example By Committing To Beat Plastic Pollution UN

"Within this period however, plastic has transformed everything from clothing, cooking, and catering to product design, engineering and retailing", due to its advantage of lasting for a long time, almost all the plastic ever produced, still exist in one form or the other today.

"The spread of 180,000 tons of plastic materials. rings alarm bells", he noted. "I very fondly remember that in my childhood we used to carry bags made of cloth when going to the market for buying groceries", said Fatima Rehman, 38, a housewife. He called on people to pledge to eliminate all single-use plastic from India by 2022.

Today, World Environment Day, 12 local and global businesses signed a declaration to tackle plastic pollution by committing to using 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging in their New Zealand operations by 2025 or earlier, as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy initiative.

The Minister said plastic menace was not only an environmental issue, but also a major socio-economic development challenge and clearly among the tragedies of the 21st century.

For decades, official and popular efforts in Sudan have failed to find means to keep the environmental balance, curb up desert encroachment and lessen impact of drought waves. The worst of the rubbish is clearly the non-biodegradable plastic and the city generates around 400 tonnes of it every day, according to the BBMP.

The World Environment Day is a day for people to make their contribution to saving the Earth. The United Nations has named India as the 2018, and their theme is "Beating Plastic Pollution". In the last decade, the world has produced more plastic than we have in the last century.

The issue of plastic pollution in the world's oceans has soared up the agenda following the BBC's Blue Planet II and campaigns by many organisations, with two-thirds of people (67%) more concerned than a year ago, the poll found.

We all are on the cutting edge of a global plastic calamity. The report examines the plastic pollution state in 2018, analyses the action implemented against plastic pollution and proposes ten-steps for the policymakers to follow.

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres urged everybody to stop using single-use plastics which have reached astronomical numbers. Except for this move, Narendra Modi announced a national marine litter campaign and a programme to measure how much plastic enters India's coastal waters.

The report said the five trillion plastic bags consumed each year equalled almost 10 million plastic bags per minute.
