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.

"Dee! Thank you for taking up this wonderful initiative & for making sure we stay responsible always!"

Plan an Event - plan a mini event by celebrating this day with friends or colleagues.

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

Critics charge that Japanese consumers and retailers use too much plastic, as a mania for elaborate packaging results in nearly everything being wrapped - even single pieces of fruit. He said that pollution check can not bring out results from state government and Centre, but it also requires effort of the people to come forward and spreading awareness about it.

Volunteers collect plastic and other recyclable material at seaside in Mumbai, India, June 5, 2018. In our cities, plastic bags also choke drains, which results in flooding.

"When it comes to plastic pollution, Brits are mad as hell and they're not going to take it anymore".

Video Reveals What Steph Curry Said To Kendrick Perkins During Altercation
Then again, nobody in the league, let alone the Cavs , has an answer for Curry when he's shooting as well as he did Sunday night. Curry torched the Cavs in Game 2 with his 33 points on the strength of 9-for-17 shooting from behind the arc.

"Every year, more than eight million tonnes end up in the oceans".

However, Greenpeace applauded companies which were beginning to eliminate single-use plastics from their shelves and checkouts.

"Refuse what you can't re-use".

Sade Nubi, a Senior Environmental Engineer with the Department of Works and Physical Planning, said that the event involved a walk for the environment and a presentation on beating plastic pollution on campus.

With the growing issue on plastic waste menace, eminent global sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik has created a sand turtle with installation of plastic bottles at Puri beach with a message "Beat Plastic Pollution". Pandya went on to say: "It is unfortunate that the state's environment minister himself is trying to protect plastic manufacturing units, which produce banned category of plastic".

Microplastics are small plastic pieces less than five millimeters long which can be harmful to our ocean and aquatic life, and they also make their way into the water supply and enter human bodies. Mahesh Pandya, an environment activist, said: "Instead of merely focusing on publicity, the Gujarat government needs to ban plastic like Maharashtra and Sikkim have done". Oxfam and its partners have mobilized students, in fabric bag distributions, plastic cleanup drives and tree plantations in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Multan, Lahore and Karachi to help mitigate plastic pollution in Pakistan.

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.
