India consumed an estimated 15.5 million tons of plastic in 2016-17, according to PlastIndia Foundation, an organization of major associations and institutions connected with plastic. That number is predicted to increase to 20 million tons by 2019-20.

In India, about 70% of the plastic the country consumes is simply discarded. Large amounts end up in the water by way of the River Ganges, which comes second only to China's Yangtze in the amount of plastic it contributed to the world's oceans, according to a 2017 study.

It’s high time the citizens of India realise the drastic effects of plastic and feel the need for saving environment.

Focus has to be on mobilising the world to tackle plastic pollution, including creating support for a global effort to eliminate single-use plastics along with global regulation for the disposal of plastics.  Government should make sincere efforts to educate millions of people about the health and other risks associated with the use and disposal of plastics, including pollution of our oceans, water, and wildlife, and about the growing body of evidence that decomposing plastics are creating serious global problems.

Curb the Plastic menace at grassroot level by imposing a ban on plastic production. The plastic that has already been manufactured cannot be dealt with. But at least we can stop making more.  Alongside, also place a ban on single-use plastic. Save the environment. Leave a liveable world for the future generations.
