This is not the first time the actor has voiced concerns over plastic pollution in the country, recently Dia Mirza lent her support to NDTV’s Banega Swachh India 12-hour cleanathon where she highlighted the point that India needs to fight its battle against plastic, she adds,

If we hope to become Swachh Bharat, then we have to create better waste management system, we need to improve the awareness in not just civil society but also in administration. Everybody needs to know one thing that whatever we are consuming needs to go somewhere, so it is very important at administrative levels that better policies are made and as citizens of the country we need to start making informed choices.

The actor also stressed on the point that single use plastic should be banned in our country.
