He said in Ghana, the lack of clean drinking water, caused by pollution of most of the rivers and water sources, also exacerbated the problem of the use of plastic or sachet water, since most people in the country depended on sachet water for drinking.

"We solicit for your collaboration and support in educating and informing our people on the giant strides this administration is doing in the Environment sector". In total, 50 per cent of the plastic is of single use.

Up to five trillion plastic bags are used each year, and 13 million tonnes of plastic leaks into the oceans annually.

However, it is clearly stated that firms have to show a greener responsibility and adopt a more circular economy approach.

Gujarat's minister of state for environment reportedly opposes the ban on plastic as most industries that depend on it operate from his assembly constituency of Halol. The choices may not be easy.

"And we want governments to fill the policy gaps, and ensure there are clear incentives for doing the right thing", the United Nations environment chief said.

The theme invites us all to consider how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce the heavy burden of plastic pollution on our natural places, our wildlife - and our own health.

"We recognise the need to tackle the issue of water availability, which is becoming a major challenge in India".

Plastic clogging sewers - a major problem in Delhi and slums across the developing world - can spread disease or wind up in the stomachs of animals, the United Nations said.
