PIB
Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar has announced that a massive campaign will be launched to make India free of single-use plastic. He said, in this regard, a series of meetings will be held with all stakeholders including state governments to chalk out a concrete plan to make it a people's campaign to realise the ultimate target.
 
Mr. Javadekar made this announcement at Sau Paulo in Brazil yesterday, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Independence Day speech urged people to shun single-use plastic and encouraged the use of jute and cloth bags to protect the environment.  


Addressing a gathering during  Independence Day function there,  Mr. Javadekar said  the Prime Minister, while laying out the vision for the next five years, highlighted how the first 75 days of the present government was highly productive and several historic decisions like on Triple Talaq, Jammu and  Kashmir and on many other issues were taken.
