This is excellent intent, and I hope that Aditya Thackeray is successful in making Maharashtra single use plastic free this year.
Microplastics are now present in everything we eat, whether it be plant-based, animal based, or fish. And so we have microplastics in human tissue as well.
The Prime Minister has made an Independence Day announcement that puts India on track to reject single use plastic. This is much needed and I hope we are successful in doing this.
Plastic wrappers out and paper wrappers in for chocolates, and more. It’s not really possible to talk about food safety and security in a holistic manner without also talking about environmental issues that affect human health.
In my opinion, in an Indian context, yes and no. It sounds horrifying, and it is quite catchy to talk about everyone consuming plastic particles (fibers) from almost everything we eat or drink.
