World Environment Day is the United Nation's most significant day of the year for encouraging worldwide awareness and action regarding the preservation of our environment. While we really appreciate the steps undertaken by Pakistan Navy to reduce plastic pollution, other organisations and industries also need to join the effort to make our environment totally clean from such hazardous waste.

Otunta said that the 2018 World Environment Day celebration had presented the nation with another opportunity to increase its efforts towards checking plastic pollution.

Earlier this week it was reported a pilot whale had died in Thailand after swallowing more than 80 plastic bags. Delhi with 689.52 tonnes tops the chart of plastic waste followed by Chennai (429.39 tonnes), Mumbai (408.27 tonnes), Bengaluru (313.87 tonnes) and Hyderabad (199.33 tonnes). We are staring at a global catastrophe. "Worse, a lot of it is non-biodegradable", he said adding that "Clean India Mission" has a special focus on "plastic waste management". MLPs are non-recyclable, non-energy recoverable, and have no alternative uses, and are hence a critical threat to the ecosystem.

It has to be mentioned that key results of the report show that government levies and bans, if correctly implemented, have been very effective in the battle against plastic overconsumption.
