Reject single-use plastic to chart path to cleaner and greener world: UN Chief on World Environment Day
The World Environment Day 2018 is being observed with the theme "Beat Plastic Pollution" to raise awareness about protecting the environment and combat the menace of plastic pollution.

"On World Environment Day, the message is simple: reject single-use plastic. Refuse what you can't re-use. Together, we can chart a path to a cleaner, greener world," stated UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, in his message.

This year's host country for the observance is India.

"Every World Environment Day has a different global host country, where the official celebrations take place. The focus on the host country helps highlight the environmental challenges it faces, and supports the effort to address them," stated the UN-Environment.

The UN has urged the netizens to get involved and join the global game of '#BeatPlasticPollution tag!' for being the part of the worldwide movement to clean up the planet. The organization has urged individuals and social groups to get involved in observing the World Environment Day through their toolkit registration whether they were a school, government, nonprofit, or business.

"In recent years, millions of people have taken part in thousands of registered activities worldwide," stated the UN-Environment and urged to sign up to remain updated on various activities by visiting the World Environment Day website.
