With Earth Day already being celebrated on the same day in many countries, the United Nations made a decision to assign April 22 to International Mother Earth Day through resolution A/RES/63/278.
Panelists at the 2018 Earth-Day Forum have urged the media to publicise the dangers that plastic waste pollution posed to the citizenry as an effective start of a mass campaign against the menace.
Banerjee in her tweet said, "On the occasion of Earth Day, let us pledge to keep our environment clean".
The day also sees public awareness drives across the planet regarding the challenges it faces and how to overcome them to make life in it sustainable. Our goals include ending single-use plastics, promoting alternatives to fossil fuel-based materials, promoting 100 percent recycling of plastics, corporate and government accountability and changing human behavior concerning plastics.
As Earth Day organizers note, the alarming growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of not only our attractive Caribbean, but also our planet as we know it, with effects ranging from poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, and from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills in the constrained space of our islands. EDN will 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. We also salute the destinations that have already begun to ban plastic checkout bags for groceries or other merchandise.
