Today, on June 5, 2018, India is hosting the 2018 World Environment Day. With the theme of "Beat Plastic Pollution" for this year's edition, to bring the whole world together to combat the single-use plastic pollution. In the time it takes Hardik Pandya to bowl an over in a cricket match, four garbage trucks worth of plastic get dumped into the ocean.

Plastic Pollution facts:

  • Every year the world uses up to 5 trillion plastic bags
  • Each year, at least 13 million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans, the equivalent of a full garbage truck every minute.
  • In the last decade, we produced more plastic than in the whole last century
  • 50 percent of the plastic we use is single-use or disposable
  • We buy 1 million plastic bottles every minute
  • Plastic makes up 10% of all of the waste we generate
