War against plastic waste



NDTV’s campaign against plastic waste came in for praise by the Supreme Court on May 7 as it issued a notice to the Centre and states seeking their response on banning plastics. The court was hearing a plea by an NGO- Karuna Society for Animals.

"One channel- NDTV is going on a campaign against plastics. All our urban areas are getting choked with plastics. We must expand the scope of this petition. Until we examine the total ban on plastic and ensure the collection and disposal of all plastic the next generation will be faced with a ticking atom bomb. 1000 million plastic bottle are manufactured every day for packaging drinking water. A photo of Yamuna in a newspaper looks like a lotus pond. In Bangalore the municipal corporation has developed a technology by using plastic for making roads," said the Supreme Court.

The court also issued a notice to NDTV seeking responses on dealing with plastic waste. The case will come up for hearing after 9 weeks. Here’s your chance to join the movement against plastic waste. Send us your ideas on how to manage plastic waste. The best suggestions will be included in our response to the Supreme Court.
