Each year this day is centered on a theme that focuses on a particular problem that environment is dealing with. This year’s theme was “Beat plastic pollution”. The focus is on minimizing the use of single-use plastic throughout the world like polythene bags and pet bottles that contribute to the largest portion of plastic wastes produced by humans.
How often do we use plastic? Almost the entire day right? With a lot of plastic usages, our environment suffers a lot. Yearly, 5 trillion pieces of plastic float around in the oceans because of which sea pollution is increasing and more than 260 species of marine animals are affected by plastic debris in the ocean. The plastic doesn’t make our world uglier, it makes it unhealthy too. The usage of plastic degraded the quality of water and soil. As a living member of this earth, we need to reduce plastic usage to save animals and our environment
I am sure we all can adopt these habits to reduce the plastic usage in our daily life.
