Media urged to report on effects of plastic waste pollution
The Annual Earth Day is celebrated on April 22, on the theme: “Eradicating Plastic Pollution”.
Panelists at the 2018 Earth-Day Forum have urged the media to publicize the dangers that plastic waste pollution posed to the citizenry as an effective start of a mass campaign against the menace.
They said the move would not only inform the public of the harm posed by plastic waste, but also help to contribute towards finding a lasting solution to the problem.
Miss Cordie Aziz, the Founder of Environment360, an environment NGO which creates incentives for collecting waste for recycling, said the environment is connected to the health of the people and there was the need to keep it clean.
She urged the public and corporate entities to start segregating wastes to facilitate the recycling process.
