Worldwide partners join Việt Nam to combat plastic pollution

He commended India's commitment in overcoming the challenge of plastic pollution. To help reduce waste and fight climate change, the Government of Canada has taken significant steps and is planning important new measures to protect the environment and promote clean growth, here at home and overseas.

The University of Lagos has appealed to Lagos residents to reduce the use of plastic to protect the environment from further degradation.

Through this joint action, global partners in Việt Nam seek to act as change agents in reducing plastic pollution and raising awareness about its negative effects on humans, animals and the environment.

He said the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari attaches much importance to the development of nation's environment.

The institution made the appeal at a walk for the environment to commemorate the 2018 World Environment Day on Tuesday in Lagos.

Noting that action now is "critical" he said that "if we do not stop treating our oceans as a rubbish dump, then we'll turn them into a plastic soup where waste is more common than life".

The environment ministry's focus during this year's event was on curbing single-use plastic that is used on a daily basis across the country.

Campaigners against plastic pollution are urging millions of people around the world to avoid plastic packaged food and drink products for 24 hours as part of a "world first" One Plastic Free Day on World Environment Day. He said, it was the duty of everyone that the material prosperity does not compromise on the environment.

About eight million tonnes of plastic waste are dumped into the world's oceans every year, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic being tipped into the sea every minute of every day.

"People all across the United Kingdom are on the same page: ocean plastic pollution needs tackling and it is urgent that supermarkets take meaningful action to reduce their plastic footprint now".

The distribution of 300 million LED bulbs in three years has resulted in savings of two billion dollars and 4GW of electricity, he said.

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

"India is a very vocal, very proactive member of the UN Environment Assembly that governs the UN environment program".

Deeply moved with these shocking figures, the United Nations Environment is concentrating on its ambitious goal named 'Beat Plastic Pollution'. Mr. Modi also visited the exhibition organized on the occasion at Rajpath lawns.
