From July 1, 2022 India will ban Single use Plastic all across the country. Manufacture, import, stocking, distribution, sale and use of single use plastic is banned.
Single use plastic items have low utility and high littering potential. Means single use plastic items that are once used and discarded.
These plastics are widely used- from the packaging of items to bottles, face masks, polythene bags, cling film, coffee cups, food packaging, and trash bags, etc.
Plastic pollution is very real and singleuse plastics are small but have a large impact. The billions of billions of items of plastic waste choking our oceans, lakes, and rivers.
The most visible impacts of plastic pollution are the ingestion, suffocation and entanglement of hundreds of marine species.
Marine wildlife such as seabirds, whales, fish and turtles mistake plastic waste for prey; most then die of starvation as their stomachs become filled with plastic.
Plastic Pollution affect human’s Endocrine system. Bisphenol A (BPA) an industrial chemical used to make plastic will increase our risk of certain cancers.
Ingesting plastic can also negatively impact the immune system over time. Also, can cause hormonal issues, and even increase risk of infertility and birth defects.
It’s time for us to reject the plastic items. Nothing that is used for a few minutes should end up polluting our oceans for a lifetime.
We can bring about a change, a life where people and the planet flourish. Refuse plastic whenever possible like straws, lids, plastic bags, and plastic takeaway containers.
Replace plastic items at home with alternatives made from natural materials (bamboo toothbrushes, glass jars, wooden toys).
Let's go green and save water, paper, energy, use less plastic and improve air quality.
