World Environment Day 2018 India is the global host this year and the theme is Beat Plastic Pollution

The poll for Greenpeace comes on World Environment Day, the theme of which this year is "Beat Plastic Pollution".

The theme for this year's edition is "Beat Plastic Pollution", and several government agencies and individuals are coming together for the cause. 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. Mahesh Pandya, an environment activist, said: "Instead of merely focusing on publicity, the Gujarat government needs to ban plastic like Maharashtra and Sikkim have done".

Through this joint action, worldwide 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. "We want everyone to remember our message if you can't reuse it, refuse it and carry reusable shopping bags", Fiza concluded.

Speaking at the state environment ministers' conference here, he said that an emotional attachment with the environment is imperative for its preservation.

Since it was first celebrated in 1974, the Day has helped raise awareness and generate political momentum around global environmental concerns such as ozone depletion, desertification and global warming.

Durant scores 43 to lead Warriors over Cavs in Game 3
Kevin Durant's 43 points were the third most scored by a Warriors' player in an NBA Finals game. They were asking for trouble. "We've been here before and that's the biggest thing", Kerr said.

Reiterating his government's commitment to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said: "Our national mission on cleanliness and sanitation - Swachh Bharat Abhiyan - has a special focus on "plastic waste management". Around half of all plastic consumed is single use, meaning it immediately becomes waste if not recycled.

"We make a solemn pledge that we will eliminate all single-use plastics from our country", said Union environment minister Harsh Vardhan while referring to PM Modi's idea of 'New India' by 2022.

Critics charge that Japanese consumers and retailers use too much plastic, as a mania for elaborate packaging results in nearly everything being wrapped - even single pieces of fruit.

This campaign aims to change attitudes and behaviour towards Waste and environment in general and mobilize every citizen to take responsibility for keeping their communities clean. "It is the duty of each one of us to ensure that material prosperity does not compromise our environment". "Every year, more than eight million tonnes end up in the oceans", he said.

"We're expecting this to be the most exciting and inspiring World Environment Day ever!", Solheim told PTI. "Let us join hands in the drive to reduce not just plastic pollution but all forms of pollution", says Dr Molewa.

"World Environment Day will therefore be a celebration and a call to action and leadership".
