India’s capital city Delhi has introduced a ban on disposable plastic.
Cutlery, bags, cups and other forms of single-use plastic were prohibited by the National Green Tribunal (NGT).
There is particular concern in the country about the amount of plastic waste it produces. According to the Times of India, it is responsible for an astonishing 60 per cent of the plastic that is dumped in the world’s oceans every year.
The ban affects the whole National Capital Territory (NCT) area of Delhi.delhi ] [ environment ] [ plastic ]
