The use of plastic is polluting our water bodies, damaging
marine life and causing threat to human health. Plastics are not biodegradable and most of them cannot be recycled, creating imbalance in our eco-system.
For creating awareness, World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5 every year and this year India will serve as the global host of the day. We urge citizens to join hands in exploring sustainable alternatives and cut the excessive use and production of plastic. In 2018, the day will be on the theme ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.

A few steps may reduce pollution created by plastic items 1) Use of paper bag instead of polythene bags 2) Create awareness amongst common people to avoid plastic bags etc. 3) Since it will be difficult to ban the plastic producing industries, so awareness programme will help in minimizing of use of plastics bags etc.

If we use biodegradable plastic it would be becoming a alternative of traditional plastic which is made up of chemicals.Biodegradable plastics are made from all-natural plant materials. These can include corn oil, orange peels, starch, and plants. Traditional plastic is made with chemical fillers that can be harmful to the environment when released when the plastic is melted down. With biodegradable plastic, you get a substance made from natural sources that does not harm society.

The packaging industry is the main culprit of plastic pollution. I viewed my monthly grocery shopping and only remember that the matchbox (diyasalai) is not packeted in plastic. Polythene bags are the part of pollution, but only a small part. To make a solution for plastic pollution, first and foremost, government have to ban plastic packaging in all food and household items all over India immediately.

We should use non woven carry bags more than plastics bags as non woven bags are reusable, photo-degradable and also cheaper as compared to other alternatives for plastic.And as compared to paper bags, the process of making non woven carry bags is much easier and better for the environment. There is no cutting of trees involved. The administration should promote non woven bags as much as possible.

We certainly can Beat Plastic Pollution by simply banning manufacture and use of one time use of plastic containers for water, fruit drinks etc. Another way will be to have a vigorous awareness campaign amongst the public to dispose plastic items in designated spots to be collected by GMC/NGO workers for ultimate disposal. Still further, we can install at very convenient points water dispensing units from where people can collect water in other vessels other than throw away plastics.

Though plastic pollution is a menace, people won't stop using it as Plastic products have become an integral part in our daily life as a basic need. Pyrolysis process becomes an option of waste-to-energy technology to deliver oil from all types of plastic waste from household, industrial and bio medical waste. Pyrolysis is a very good solution for plastic waste management which will lead to a very sustainable environment around us along with the socio economic development of the society.

Top alternatives for plastic:
1) hemp fibre.
Made from cannabis plant(non psychoactive)
2) hemp fibres used to make clothes, bags, shoes ,concrete and.hemp miz and even in making cars substituting plastic fibres.. Hemp fibres, made cars are 6 times stronger than steel.

2) hemp cultivation will boost the economy.
3) use of plastic to construct roads. Which are more durable, weather proof, rain resistant.

All banners used for any meetings / celebration functions etc. should be made of cloths. Also use of all other Single Use Plastics in any forms is strictly prohibited to reduce the plastic burden. All painters (Banner writters) are now jobless, due to our apathy or invasion of flex machines. Such Painters may be facilitated with soft loan with or without subsidies. Districtwise empanelled Painters should mandatorily be involved for all painting works associated with Govt functions in districts.
