Plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land: Mushahidullah

According to the Earth Day Network (EDN), the Earth Day has reached its 48th year and is celebrated every year on Arpil 22.

In his message on Earth Day, Minister for Climate Change Mushahidullah pointed out that Plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land, greatly harming marine life and our own health.

We recently saw the "plasticberg" of garbage that drifted into parts of our pristine Caribbean Sea, underscoring the plastic pollution that already spoils some of our beaches.

Earth Day Network, the organization that leads Earth Day worldwide, today announced that Earth Day 2018 will focus on mobilizing the world to End Plastic Pollution, including creating support for a global effort to eliminate single-use plastics along with global regulation for the disposal of plastics.

Banerjee in her tweet said, "On the occasion of Earth Day, let us pledge to keep our environment clean".

Cynthia Villar, chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, asked the government to "take bolder and more innovative measures" to reduce the amount of plastic entering the waters. So, it is even more urgent that we come together in a smart partnership with all sectors and communities to clean out the plastic pollution and ensure clean and pristine waters dominate the million square miles that comprise the Caribbean. By sharing these successes we hope to encourage and inspire more business to find plastic-free solutions.

The daylong event organised by Earth Day Bengaluru at The Arts Village, St Mark's Road, exhibited some eco-friendly ecosystems in urban areas through various stalls, workshops and movie screenings. People across the world organise various events to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Governments and corporations should also take necessary steps to tackle plastic pollution.
