It’s World Environment Day and people across the globe are doing their bit to promote causes that will help us in building a better environment. And just like every year, even this year, the United Nations Environment council has decided to promote a new cause of #BeatPlasticPollution this year.

We don’t need to tell you what the usage of plastic has done to our ecosystem. Hence, taking it seriously the council has joined hands with several global icons and celebrities to start a campaign called #BeatPlasticPollution.

Taking to Twitter, the UN Environment council tweeted, “You’re it! Join the global game of Tag to #BeatPlasticPollution for #WorldEnvironmentDay – show how you’re making the switch from single-use plastic & challenge 3 friends to do the same.”

Tag, you’re all it!
It takes just a few moments to play #BeatPlasticPollution tag for #WorldEnvironmentDay – challenge your friends to join in the push for a cleaner, greener future. 💚ðŸŒ? pic.twitter.com/yEAxonAjNZ

Don’t cry over the past, it’s gone.
Don’t stress about the future, it hasn’t arrived.
Live in the present and make it beautiful!

This #WorldEnvironmentDay, let us all make the change.
Stop littering and say goodbye to single-use plastic!
Together we can #BeatPlasticPollution! pic.twitter.com/SJ6XcJDD5v

Actress Dia Mirza for a very long time has been working on various environmental causes that have made some difference in India. Taking up the #BeatPlasticPollution cause, she was seen nominating some actors which included Alia Bhatt.

Alia was seen taking up the cause too and creating awareness on social media. Giving up plastic, she has asked everyone to switch to steel or glass bottles. She even mentioned how plastic bottles take 450 years or more to decompose, harming us and our environment, which is a very serious point for all of us to note.

#BeatPlasticPollution by switching to steel or glass bottles today! Plastic bottles take 450 years or more to decompose, harming us and our environment. I’m now one step closer towards purging plastic from my life. Hope you guys will make the switch too!#LetsCoexist @deespeak pic.twitter.com/VyI70hggRv

Taking about plastic, Kangana said in a video, “According to reports, in 30 years, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. I urge everyone to ban the use of plastic bags. I’m joining Rally for Rivers and United Nations in the fight against plastic pollution, and I request everyone to do the same.”

We also saw Indian yogi, Sadguru, requesting people to quit the usage of plastic.  He pointed out a very valid point and wrote on Twitter, “we are looking at plastic pollution as an isolated ecological problem. But this is essentially a human problem. An indication that we have lost contact with life around us.”

Single-use plastic must be banned. This is our planet. This is our time. Let’s do the right things. #SadhguruQuotes #BeatPlasticPollution @UNEnvironment @ErikSolheim @narendramodi @PMOIndia pic.twitter.com/PFeC0P4e02

Unfortunately, we are looking at plastic pollution as an isolated ecological problem. But this is essentially a human problem. An indication that we have lost contact with life around us. –Sg   #BeatPlasticPollution @ErikSolheim @UNEnvironment @deespeak @dr_maheshsharma @moefcc pic.twitter.com/qEQRHqQP9X

We often feel what difference will our individual choices make, without realizing that real change always starts with small baby steps. On this #WorldEnvironmentDay Lets take responsibility for our actions which cause any form of pollution.
Together lets #BeatPlasticPollution https://t.co/kpBN46Oufq

Only a close 10% of the plastic produced globally is recycled while the rest ends up in different ecosystems endangering all life forms.#BeatPlasticPollution by saying no to single use plastic.Share your ideas to save the environment and I’ll give shoutout to the best tweets 😊 pic.twitter.com/Fty92U2l7F

Well, I shifted to metal bottles almost a year back, thanks to my mom. And now we really hope the word these celebs are spreading will bring about the necessary change. This World Environment Day, let’s come together and work towards building a greener future for the coming generations.
