CHTA Earth Day message from president Karolin Troubetzkoy

In his message on Earth Day, Minister for Climate Change Mushahidullah pointed out that Plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land, greatly harming marine life and our own health.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 2018 Earth Day marked on April 22, has the theme "End Plastic Pollution".

According to him, plastic pollution is now an ever-present challenge.

"On the occasion of Earth Day, let us pledge to keep our environment clean".

Philadelphia 76ers: 3 takeaways from Game 3 vs. Heat
So it would come as no surprise if Monday's result-a 10-point loss-was just a blip on the radar. Goran Dragic was the scoring leader for the Heat, totaling 23 points and eight assists.

END Plastic Pollution was the theme of this year's Earth Day observed on Saturday.

As Earth Day organizers note, the alarming growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of not only our lovely Caribbean, but also our planet as we know it, with effects ranging from poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, and from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills in the constrained space of our islands. "And we are also at fault because we haven't made the break from single-use plastics even though alternatives are now on the markets". WWF-Pakistan studies revealed that 65% of garbage that littered beaches along Pakistan's coast consist of plastics, which includes mineral water bottles, caps, polythene bags, balloons, wrappers, shoes, broken utensils and discarded fishing nets. By sharing these successes we hope to encourage and inspire more business to find plastic-free solutions.

He said government was also implementing a National Plastic Waste Recycling Programme to establish plastic waste recycling plants across the country in partnership with state governments.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and leadership from the RI Department of Environmental Management, Clean Ocean Access, and Clean Water Action will come together Monday morning to call to end plastic pollution.
