PN observes World Environment Day

Venkaiah Naidu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged people to reaffirm the commitment to a cleaner and sustainable planet and pledge to beat the plastic pollution.

"A similar effort is required against plastic and you can see great change", said Solheim, giving an example of 32-year-old Vadodara resident Rajeshwari Singh who took a 45-day walk from Gujrat to Delhi to raise awareness about plastic pollution.

"The call for beating plastic pollution in this year's world environment theme will further strengthen our resolve to make JSPL campus plastic free".

Highlighting the importance of protecting the environment, the minister said, "Environmental issues are gaining attention at various levels as their implications are not just on the present generation but also the future generations". Alongside, Hyundai Dealer Workshops will conduct environment friendly activities to engage and create awareness among the customers & employees for the reduction in use of plastics, usage of LED's that consume up to 80% less energy and Proper disposal of waste material.

On pollution caused by plastics, as the Environment Day being hosted this year by India is themed "Beat Plastic Pollution", the Prime Minister expressed concern over declining number of fishes and ocean pollution.

"Plastics can not be recycled nor transformed".

But elsewhere things haven't gone so well.

On practical solutions to reduce plastics, Madam Aziz reiterated the need to focus on educating people on the harmful effect of plastics and how to handle it using new and intensive methods.

This plastic could have been worth £5.7 million if recycled, but instead costs Scotland, and the relevant local authorities, an estimated £5.3 million to send to landfill, Zero Waste Scotland said.

Besides a problem with plastics, India is also home to some of the most polluted cities in the world.
