World Environment Day is the "people's day" for doing something to take care of the Earth.

Joint Commissioner BBMP (Solid Waste Management), Sarfaraz Khan claims that it is thanks to the agency's raids that the big eateries have stopped using plastic.

"It is undeniable plastic materials and products have many uses in daily life and we may not realise that many are single use plastics".

About eight million tonnes of plastic waste are dumped into the world's oceans every year, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic being tipped into the sea every minute of every day.

The World Environment Day was first introduced by the United Nations in 1974 and since then it has developed into a global platform for raising awareness and taking action on urgent issues from marine pollution and global warming to sustainable consumption and wildlife crime.

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. We must change the attitude, Not the climate!

Guterres has a simple message on World Environment Day: "Reject single-use plastic".

In-line with the global theme of "Beating Plastic Pollution", Hyundai's initiatives will focus on reducing the usage of plastics at its manufacturing plant in Sriperumbudur near Chennai and across all its 493 Hyundai Dealerships and 1309 Service Workshops.

He commended India's commitment in overcoming the challenge of plastic pollution. This year's WOD theme is: Preventing plastic pollution and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean.

WATCH: How do we solve the plastic catastrophe?

According to Cheema, most of these plastics eventually make their way into rivers, water channels and finally, into the oceans.

"Pledges like this ignore the stark reality of what's happening in this country - we've got plastic waste being stockpiled by councils with no place to go, there are no industrial-scale composting facilities for bioplastic and there are no bans on plastic bags, cutlery and other easy-to-eliminate plastic pollution".

The UN said more than 60 countries had introduced bans and levies on single-use plastic items like bags.

Imran Sabir from Sepa said that people should stop the use of one-time plastic commodities, such as straws and cups, which would create a huge positive impact.

Less than a 10th of all the plastic ever made has been recycled, and governments should consider banning or taxing single-use bags or food containers to stem a tide of pollution, a United Nations report says. In total, 50 per cent of the plastic is of single use.
