India honors Gandhi birth by banning single use plastics
Gandhi would like this.
India will implement a nationwide ban on 6 single-use plastic items on the 2nd October this year - the 150th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi.
Single-use plastic bags, cups, plates, straws, small bottles, and certain sachets will be banned across India from the 2nd October this year, according to a report from Reuters.
The move is a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s plan to completely remove single-use plastics by 2022.
