Single-use plastic is being banned across the country from today. Yes, and under this, many things made of plastic will stop being seen. This list also includes many things used in everyday life, which will no longer be seen. Let us tell you all that the Union Environment Ministry has released a list of goods that are being banned. In fact, such things are made of single-use plastic, which we can only use once or throw away by using it and which harms the environment.
These items of single-use plastic will now be banned-
Plastic carry bags, polyethene (with thickness less than 75 microns)
Plastic Stick Ear Buds
Plastic sticks for balloons
Candy Stick, Ice Cream Stick
A film that wraps or packs cans of sweets.
Plastic or PVC banners of less than 100 microns
Stir (something that mixes sugar etc.)
Let us tell you all that it has been clearly told by the ministry that if anyone is found using single-use plastic, then he will be punished. Yes, and this list includes both prisons and fines. It has been reported that the use of single-use plastic will be dealt with under Section 15 of the Environment Protection Act (EPA). Apart from this, the state governments will now keep a close watch on whether single-use plastic (SUP) is being illegally manufactured, imported, deposited, sold or used anywhere. Although the FMCG sector has been exempted from this ban at the moment, the plastic used for packing is environmentally fine, it has to be taken care of.
