Delhi Greens has been running a sustained campaign to beat plastic pollution. The campaign against single-use plastic holds paramount importance due to its potential to mitigate a number of environmental, health, and societal challenges facing the city. The severe air and water pollution in Delhi is exacerbated by the rampant use and disposal of plastic.
Plastic waste clogs drains and poses a threat to River Yamuna. Moreover, burning plastic waste contributes significantly to Delhi’s hazardous air quality, resulting in respiratory problems among its residents. The Beat Plastic Pollution campaign seeks to reduce these detrimental impacts, protect the environment and improve public health. It fosters awareness and a sense of responsibility among Delhi’s citizens, promoting sustainable alternatives for a cleaner, greener, and healthier future for the city.
