On International Plastic Bag Free Day, IAS officer Supriya Sahu has emphasized the critical need for global action against plastic pollution. Through a series of impactful videos, she underscored the stark choice humanity faces: either free the planet from plastic pollution or risk irreversible damage to our ecosystems.

In her tweet, Ms. Sahu highlighted alarming statistics, citing studies that estimate global consumption of plastic carrier bags at 0.5–1 trillion annually, equivalent to 1-2 million bags per minute. These staggering figures illustrate the severe threat posed to marine life and biodiversity. Plastic waste continues to choke oceans, endangering species like turtles and whales.

Sahu’s message resonates as a clarion call for urgent measures to curb plastic consumption and promote sustainable alternatives. The global community is urged to take decisive steps towards a cleaner, healthier planet by reducing plastic use and adopting eco-friendly practices.

The International Plastic Bag Free Day serves as a reminder of our collective responsibility to protect our environment from the detrimental impacts of plastic pollution.
