Abstract:
The issue of single use plastics and the damage and pollution caused by them is a global problem, and poses a real danger for the future of the planet and the environment. Given this, governments across the world are attempting to implement policies to eradicate single use plastics in favour of more sustainable alternatives. This paper will examine the issue of plastic pollution in India, the policies to address the same, and the participation by various stakeholders. The paper will then post policy recommendations for effective implementation and enforcement of these strategies.
