New Delhi, India, May 14: From June 1 to June 1, the Delhi Secretariat will prohibit single-use plastic products.In the first phase, the Delhi Secretariat will prohibit the use of pens and water bottles.In the Delhi Secretariat's premises, banners, posters, and single-use plastic food cutlery will also be banned.Gopal Rai said that the Environment Department is taking all necessary measures to reduce pollution, according to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

In such circumstances, single-use plastic is harmful.Plastic spoons and forks, straws, polythene, plastic glasses, and other items that can't be reused are discarded.Many people attempt to destroy plastic products by burning it or dumping it on the ground, which causes a significant amount of air, water, and land pollution, as well as a significant harm to the environment.Also, single-use plastic materials, because they are light, have been found to easily travel through air and water, causing nearby sewage or drainage systems to choke and causing problems with waterlogging, he said.Instead of single-use water bottles and cutlery, bamboo, glassporcelain, metal, or paper cutlery will be used.
