The pan-India ban on certain single-use plastics will face many implementation challenges, especially in the Himalayan region.
Solutions Are Needed, Urgently!
Waste dumping disproportionately impacts marginalized communities and wildlife habitats. Waste burning releases dioxins and furans, some of the most toxic and carcinogenic chemicals known to scientists. Microplastics and nano-plastics have polluted our air, water, and land. Waste burning also releases black carbon, a significant source of pollutants, leading to the faster melting of the Himalayan glaciers and thereby reinforcing anthropogenic climate change.
We as humans have created this problem; We as Warriors can solve this problem!
