India’s capital, Delhi, has just introduced a ban on disposable plastic amid concern over pollution of the sea and air.
There have been complaints about the illegal burning of plastic and other waste at 3 local rubbish dumps which has been causing severe air pollution, and if reports from ‘The Times of India’ are correct, that India is responsible for 60% of the plastic dumped in the world’s oceans every year, then it is about time too!!
This is great news as cutlery, bags, cups and other forms of single-use plastic are prohibited by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) this ban now affects the whole National Capital Territory (NCT) area of Delhi.
Similar, radical action is needed worldwide to try and reduce the horrendous environmental impact of plastics everywhere – EcoFrenzy wishes Delhi good luck!
