India lauded for plan to beat plastic pollution

India aims to partner with the UN to use solar energy at the world body's premises as part of the efforts to protect and preserve environment, the country's Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin has said. He called on people to pledge to eliminate all single-use plastic from India by 2022. This is the third in the series of video bridge interactions by the Prime Minister with various beneficiaries of Government schemes.

It also tends to achieve realistic alternatives to replace the use of plastic materials, he added, mentioning ways to fight plastic materials by preventing the manufacturing and circulation of plastic bags.

Prof Frimpong-Boateng said Ghana was taking various measures in dealing with the plastic waste menace, announcing that the country, was developing a policy was to guide the use of plastics, and that would be heralded by an environmental education and awareness creation among the citizenry.

The theme for this year's edition is "Beat Plastic Pollution", and several government agencies and individuals are coming together for the cause.

The government has framed comprehensive "Plastic and Solid Waste Management Rules" which address all the concerns related to plastics.

And by 2050, he says, if present trends continue, there will be more plastic in the world's oceans than fish. The global plastic production is projected to almost double within a short period of time. The UN Secretary-General concluded by saying that global unity against plastic pollution is the solution towards a greener and more climate-friendly environment. Events began Friday, with high-profile Indian politicians speaking out on the increasing damage plastics are doing to the environment and the country's beaches.

She needs a sonogram and fine needle biopsy. "I am watching a TV show and notice this woman has a left thyroid mass", he wrote. Hopefully, McGuinness will be successful in her fight against cancer once again - and her recovery will be all thanks to Dr.

Basing his submission on five thematic areas namely; Attitude, Change Behaviour, Creating Value, Replace, Reuse and Awareness, he explained that, there was the need to reduce dependency on plastic usage to save humans and marine lives. Since plastic bags take around one thousand years to decompose one can only imagine how long the existing ones will remain in our lives.

"Also, through the Swachh Bharat Campaign, the waste to wealth movement has gained strength".

"We have a problem that marine biologists and oceans experts have been warning us about for years but it is only now that the issue is so starkly in our sight that we are forced to face it", he remarked.

He said questions have been raised about limited options for cheap packaging of food and drinks, especially where consumers are relatively poor; micro marketing methods of fast moving consumer goods in sachets; and the retailing of detergents also in sachets.

Earlier, it was the United Nations which had also invited people to join the global game of tagging people to beat the use of plastic.

The event emphasised the role of schools, colleges and universities in protecting nature and environment as well as beating plastic pollution, stated another official release.

UN Environment head Erik Solheim, said: "The assessment shows that action can be painless and profitable - with huge gains for people and the planet that help avert the costly downstream costs of pollution".
