PM Modi on World Environment Day

June 5 marks the World Environment Day and it is the United Nation's most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment.

New Zealand-based businesses that signed the NZ Plastic Packaging Declaration are Foodstuffs, Countdown, New Zealand Post and Frucor Suntory. Gathered here, a look at some of this plastic waste from the past year, accumulating in waterways, forests, and beaches across the globe, and some of the efforts to clean and recycle the mountains of material.

The African Development Bank (AfDB), says there is the need to take action against plastic pollution in Africa.

"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".

"We need action now. If present trends continue, by 2050 our oceans will have more plastic than fish", he said. I urge everyone to ban single-use plastic bags.

The Bank welcomes the Government of Côte d'Ivoire's ban on the production, import, and sale of single-use plastic bags, as it creates the framework for embedding design for recycling and the circular economy into design and manufacturing processes.

Fuego volcano erupts in Guatemala
Rescuers, police and journalists hurried to leave the area as a siren wailed and loudspeakers blared, "Evacuate". Experts say the volcano emitted something different than what has been seen in Hawaii, a pyroclastic flow .

The UN chief said the world must unite to "beat plastic pollution" now, noting that microplastic particles in the ocean, "now outnumber stars in our galaxy".

"Plastic pollution is already having a deadly impact on our ecosystem", the prime minister said while addressing the plenary session of the World Environment Day at Vigyan Bhawan here.

This year's World Environment Day provided an opportunity for each of us to embrace the many ways that we can help to combat plastic pollution in Nigeria.

The walk, which was part of the ongoing 2018 National Environment Week, was organised by Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) in partnership with the Ministry of Environment with the aim to raise awareness and encourage the general public to join the effort to address plastic pollution.

"An average 13 million tonnes of plastic waste enter the water system around the world annually, resulting in pollution from drainages, rivers and seas and causing floods". Measures like carrying a cloth bag, avoiding bottled plastic water, and cardboard over plastic are some of the most easiest ones to implement in daily lives.

Among the programs organized on World Environment Day in the capital, Sadguru, UN Environment director and Brand Ambassador Dia Mirza launched a campaign in Central Park to stop the use of plastics.
