The report said that Modi's commitment is the world's most ambitious "plastic" action. The move aims to completely stop India’s plastic pollution, which has a population of 1.3 billion and the fastest-growing economy. "Today's choices will determine our future," Modi said on the 5th at the World Environment Day celebrations. “This choice is not easy, but by raising awareness, technology and a true global partnership, I believe we have made the right choice. Let's join together to defeat plastic pollution and make this planet a better place.”

The United Nations released a new report on the 5th that records 50 countries that are taking significant actions to curb marine plastic pollution: Kenya prohibits the use of plastic bags; Sri Lanka uses styrofoam; China uses biodegradable plastics Bags; Britain uses tax cuts to use disposable plastic bags and so on. According to the report, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean each year, causing whale and other marine life to suffocate. Plastic pollution has spread all over the world, from the most remote islands to Switzerland's peak. Not only that, microplastics are even present in tap water and human foods, causing great damage to health.

Eric Solheim, head of the UN Environment Department, said on the 5th: "There is no doubt that we are on the verge of a plastic disaster." But he praised India's initiative: "They have shown that the political movement has become Practical actions can inspire the world and bring about real changes.” India also promised to make India's 100 national monuments cleaner, including the Taj Mahal.

Modi said: “The greatest environmental damage is caused by the disadvantaged groups. Everyone has the responsibility to ensure that the material prosperity does not endanger our environment.” In order to fight “plastic pollution”, India is also a good fight - in 2016, the Indian government Ordered to prohibit the use of polyethylene plastic bags less than 50 microns in thickness; even Indian companies invented edible plastic bags, initiated the "eat garbage to save the earth" initiative.
