Ban on Single-Use Plastics in India

India banned the manufacture, distribution, stocking, sale and use of selected 19 single-use plastic items with effect from July 1, 2022. The ban covered plastic items like cutlery, straws, sticks and thermocol (only for the purpose of decoration), while some single-use plastic items like carry bags and banners were regulated by the thickness of 120 microns and 100 microns, respectively. 

Over a year after the ban came into force, single-use plastic items continue to be a challenge -- the banned items are reportedly still being sold and used in the country.It is evident that a lot more needs to be done to implementthe single-use plastics ban. 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a webinar to discuss and understand how effective has the ban been, what are the challenges in implementation, and what should be the way forward. 

CSE will release its new report on the subject on this occasion. 

NOTE: This is a free webinar for waste management practitioners, officials from Central and state departments and municipalities, recycling professionals, plastic industry representatives, urban and town planners, academicians, students, NGO representatives and anyone who is willing to learn about plastic waste management practices in the country.

All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. However, we request you to register yourself at the earliest since seats at the webinar would be limited, and reach out to us in case of any queries. No certificates will be awarded for attending the webinar.
