Danone joins fight against plastic waste in New Zealand

Taimur Nagar's residents know little of the hazards of non-biodegradable plastic to the water supply and the animals sat around

Lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi's achievements in the field of environment, he said that the global community believes that India will achieve its pre-2020 or COP21 targets before time.

"Plastic pollution is a huge issue everywhere", U.N. Environment chief Erik Solheim told The Associated Press in an interview.

Every year, June 5 is observed as World Environment Day and people could adopt simpler things to reduce the planet's vulnerability.

The theme of this year's commemoration is "Beat Plastic Pollution" which is meant to be a wake-up call for individuals to take charge of their surroundings and realise the severity of using plastic materials in their daily lives.

The green endeavour is aimed to create awareness on the importance of reducing plastic waste in the country, in line with the United Nations' (UN) efforts to combat pollution from plastic materials.

"These companies have drawn a line in the sand, pledging to do their bit to stem the tide of plastic waste and plastic pollution", Sage said.

The figures were released today by Zero Waste Scotland, in coordination with World Environment Day (5 June 2018) - a global day which encourages awareness and action for the protection of the environment.

"Plastics can not be recycled nor transformed".

"These are only the most recent instances of the Indian Government's efforts to focus on the plastic menace in a serious manner".

The Pope marked World Environment Day, Tuesday, tweeting a prayer: "Lord, reawaken in us a sense of praise and gratitude for our Earth, and for everything you have created".

The association said levies and taxes should be imposed on producers and consumers of single-use plastics such as plastic shopping bags.

He said there is an urgent need to improve waste management processes and scale up the search for alternatives.

The above initiative by India is the most ambitious one, which is meant to tackle plastic pollution, compared to the actions announced by 60 world counties.

Many other African counties have launched initiatives to put an end to the plastic bag hazard.

Akbaruddin said while the human civilisation has made all-round progress in controlling diseases and benefiting from technological marvels, the rapid change is also impacting the planet's environment in various ways, through over reliance on fossil fuels and unsustainable consumption and production patterns. "If present trends continue, by 2050", Guterres warned, "our oceans will have more plastic than fish".
