The slogan on the sign: "Beat Plastic Pollution - If you can't reuse it, refuse it".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to chair a plenary session in New Delhi on Tuesday which will culminate the five-day celebrations. "We can do it by 2022", Vardhan said while speaking at a programme on World Environment Day. Some 800 participants attended Tuesday's event in Bangkok, which was organised by the Department of Environmental Quality. We are drowning in plastics.

"Fifty percent of plastics in use are disposable or single-use type".

Plastics are seen as posing a threat because such waste does not degrade easily and harms the environment both on land and at sea - as highlighted in recent days by the case of a pilot whale that washed up in a Thai canal in the far South and was found to have ingested 80 black plastic bags, considered a major contributing factor in its death.

Most at a minimum have categories for burnable, unburnable, recyclable and plastics, with many also requiring people to separate out cardboard and different types of plastic. "Therefore, how to reduce the use of plastic and its by-products is one area which needs to be addressed", Harsh Vardhan had said.

Lava from Hawaii volcano destroys hundreds more homes
Lava in Vacationland early Tuesday claimed the second home of Harry Kim, the mayor of the Big Island, Snyder said. Those who live or vacation in the area were mourning the loss of popular tide-pools where kids enjoyed swimming.

Union Environment Secretary CK Mishra said 96 ministries had participated in the celebrations due to the "growing concerns" about environment.

Critics charge that Japanese consumers and retailers use too much plastic, as a mania for elaborate packaging results in nearly everything being wrapped - even single pieces of fruit.

This World Environment Day, we take a look at celebs who do their bit for the environment by being as eco-friendly as they can in their lives.

The report notes that by some estimates, as many as 5 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year.

But Japan also has complicated and strictly enforced rules on separating waste to help maximise the reuse and recycling of garbage.
