World Environment Day

India will host this year’s World Environment Day, which focuses on ocean pollution from disposable plastic products, which affects directly the lives of marine species and humans.

The campaign highlights facts, such as, the dumping of 8 tons per year of disposable products in the ocean, equivalent to one full garbage truck per minute.

Other important facts announced by UN are the consumption of 500 billion plastic bags per year and 1 million plastic bottles per minute.

India has been chosen as the host because it is one of the countries with the highest recycling rate in the world and its officials have announced that hosting the event will accelerate activities related to a subject of such importance.
