Is Recycling A Sufficient Measure To Overcome The Hustles Of Plastic Pollution?

"There is an urgent need to control pollution from the industries and the power sector to improve air, water and public health". Amarinder Singh also expressed serious concern about the pollution of rivers in cities, which he said needed to be stopped immediately.

The worldwide community, last Tuesday, celebrated the World Environment Day, a day set aside by the United Nations in 1974, to draw attention to the need to protect and improve the human environment. There was a need for beating plastic pollution by establishing proper waste management and recycling ecosystem in the country but alas the ground reality is very different than what are debated in seminars and workshops for better environment.

"Industry has a role to play in designing materials and applications for greater recovery, reuse and recyclability, but addressing the issue of plastic waste will require actions from society as a whole and from all of us as individuals", said Bob Masterson, president and CEO of CIAC.

Temple said Canadians are not doing enough "to finance research and development for a sustainable way to use this waste we're creating". Our environment deserves to be loved and protected!

Because, make no mistake, we are in a battle. Notwithstanding its geographical size, the state has been able to create awareness by conducting intensive campaigns and not just randomised fining.

The group called for a Canadian national plastics strategy, including a total ban on plastics that can't be recycled.

How the pollution occurs Plastic and solid waste pollute the sea when gutters in various communities get emptied into them. On the one hand, burning of plastics emits noxious greenhouse gases responsible for global warming and climate change while on the other, excess plastic load in water bodies threatens marine and human life.

In her opinion, the EU should "improve" its position and "one European voice" to speak in the United Nations security Council. "The leaders of the G7 has not discussed climate change and trade, which are the most sensitive" she said.

Professor and environmental scientist from Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar Adarsh Pal Vig, during an event at Pushpa Gujral Science City in Kapurthala said India is projected to be the largest consumer market for plastic goods with a consumption of 12 million tonnes per annum, behind the United States and China.

Worldwide, only 5-9% of plastic is being recycled while the annual production of plastic is approximately 335 million tonne.

While we talk about the drink companies, they are the sole contributors of about 500bn non-recyclable plastic bottles per annum. A four-year prison sentence has been imposed for the sale or use of plastic bags.

JG: What kind of impact does plastic waste have on the natural environment, human and animal life? Plastics have emerged as a real threat to humankind. This is a major concern because plastic may take thousands of years to decompose. The most suitable, eco-friendly and affordable method involving biological activity for the polyethylene waste treatment, he added.

Some consumer groups - most notably the Retail Council of Canada - are in opposition, believing they need to be involved in the process.

The Indian environment minister, Harsh Vardhan, who spoke at the summit in New Delhi announced "on a personal front" that he would give up single-use plastic in his own daily life.

The volunteers would also urge the general public to maintain the ecological balance in order to ensure environmental stability and also plant and protect more and more trees in their surroundings, he said. "Together, we can chart a path to a cleaner, greener world".
