“Single-use plastic goods will be forbidden at the Delhi Secretariat effective June 1,” Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai announced today. The use-and-throw ballpoint and drink bottles will be restricted in the Delhi Secretariat during the first phase. In addition, single-use plastic posters, signs, and food utensils will be prohibited on Delhi Secretariat grounds.”

Gopal Rai Statement on the ban of the Plastic items

“The Environment Department, led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, is taking all essential actions to tackle pollution,” Gopal Rai stated. To fight the city’s rising pollution levels, the agency has also launched a Summer Action Plan. In such cases, single-use plastic contributes greatly to pollution. Plastic spoons and forks, straws, polythene, plastic glasses, and other single-use plastics are manufactured and discarded.”

Single-use plastic items waste

He added by saying “ Many people try to remove plastic products by burning them or dumping them on the ground, which contributes significantly to air, water, and land pollution and constitutes a significant environmental risk. Furthermore, due to their small weight, single-use plastic materials have been seen to easily travel through air and water, clogging adjacent sewage or drainage systems and generating waterlogging problems”

The Environment Minister also stated that a media campaign is needed to reduce the consumption of plastic objects. “Bamboo, glass/porcelain, metal, or paper equipment will be used in place of single-use water containers and cutlery.” Furthermore, the use of reusable gel/ball/ink pens rather than use-and-throw pens will be promoted. Also, only fabric or paper banners will be used to construct banners and posters,” Gopal Rai stated.
