Since the first World Environment Day on June 5, 1974, the world has changed and challenges associated with Environmental protection have increased.

Today, World Environment Day, 12 local and global businesses signed a declaration to tackle plastic pollution by committing to using 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging in their New Zealand operations by 2025 or earlier, as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy initiative. The PM said plastic contaminants have entered into the food and water tables but also pointed out that per capita plastic consumption in India is much less than it is in most other countries of the world. "If present trends continue, by 2050 our oceans will have more plastic than fish", he said. Media reports about tons of plastic polluting our seas and oceans are frequent. More in detail, Mr Modi mentioned: "The choices that we make today will define our collective future".

Sepa Director Waqar Hussain Phulpoto was the chief guest at the occasion.

Humans are both creatures and molders of their environment, which gives them physical sustenance and affords them the opportunity for intellectual, moral, social and spiritual growth.

Knowledge is power. A person is more likely to conserve the environment when he or she is made aware of the dangers of not doing so. According to him, Sepa has prosecuted dozens of governmental agencies for their violation of environmental laws.

"Twenty kilogrammes of flexible plastic has been converted into biodegradable plastic from 2015 onwards due to the efforts of Sepa", he informed. But elsewhere things haven't gone so well.
