Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on World Environment Day

People have to act upon laws enacted on pollution, environment matters, says Union minister

The report, with its release timed for U.N. World Environment Day, noted that rules limiting the use of plastic bags had decreased their use in places such as Morocco, Rwanda and parts of China, sometimes significantly. Are you with me to try every bit to eliminate all single use plastic from our world?

"Refuse what you can't re-use".

Recently, in his contribution to the Sectoral Debate in Parliament, Mr Daryl Vaz, the minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, reported that since November 2016 RPJL has collected over 1.3 million pounds of plastic waste for export and has instituted PET bottle collection programmes in 52 schools across the island.

Leones said this should serve as a "wake up call" for the Philippines to reduce its plastic consumption.

He talked about environmental friendly steps taken by Engro in Thar and said that nature has to be preserved, which can only be done as a collaborative effort from all.

The 20 feet long art work with a message "Beat Plastic Pollution" was created by Sahoo in a bid to create awareness among people to prevent the massive use of plastic to prevent pollution of earth.

Rwanda on May 29 launched the national environment week featuring different awareness activities aimed at addressing plastic pollution, such as countrywide inspection of the illegal use of plastic bags and exhibition on plastic recycling.

"The impacts of human actions on degrading our environment - our air, rivers, oceans, forests, rural and urban spaces; threatening the survival of a large number of species including those vital to our own food chain; depleting natural resources; are in fact a threat to our own survival in the long run", he said.

Prime Minister said development should not come at the cost of the environment.

- Avoid collecting/using single use plastic bags and packaging at the market.

"At one month post launching this initiative, we saw a drop in the dry waste accumulation from 190 kgs to 100 kgs".

"Plastic pollution is particularly insidious because once plastics enter into the environment, they do not biodegrade, but simply break down into smaller pieces over time", says Minister Molewa.

According to the United Nations (UN), more than 300 million tons of plastic is produced each year and half of it is single use or disposable.

The Vice President pushed for the plastic ban, saying: "Let us take a pledge to "Beat Plastic Pollution", the theme of the World Environment Day today". In Ireland, windblown plastic bags caught in trees are referred to as "witch's knickers".

"We're expecting this to be the most exciting and inspiring World Environment Day ever!", Solheim told PTI.

If no action is taken, this is expected to increase to two per minute by 2030 and four per minute by 2050 (World Wildlife Federation, 2018).
