About World Oceans Day

The theme for World Oceans Day 2018 is ‘prevent plastic pollution and encourage solutions for a healthy ocean’. Plastic, a widely used item is becoming a threat to human life. According to United Nations, 80% of all pollution in the ocean comes from people on land. 8 million tonnes of plastic per year ends up in the ocean, wreaking havoc on wildlife, fisheries and tourism. Plastic pollution costs the lives of 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals per year. The theme is a wake-up call for all of us to stop the usage of plastic and save our oceans which play a pivotal role in our everyday life.

Keeping in mind the plastic menace, India hosted 45th World Environment Day on June 5 with the theme of #BeatPlasticPollution.
