Actress Dia Mirza, who happens to be UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, actively promoted the need for a greener and pollution free environment and wished everyone on World Environment Day. She has continually shared updates on how she has been contributing to the environment and a greener earth is the need of the hour. On Tuesday, this is what Dia Mirza wrote on Twitter: "Happy World Environment Day," and added the hashtag "#BeatPlasticPollution."
Dia had earlier shared a photo on social media, in which a large number of plastic bottles were scattered all around. Addressing her concern over plastic bottles, the actress wrote: "All those contesting Maharashtra Government's ban on single use plastics I want to ask you, WHY? How can you not see the damage it's doing? Shouldn't you be responsible for the waste you generate? We are drowning in plastics. Our health, water, soil, seas, nothing is spared."

Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Kangana Ranaut took up a challenge spearheaded by Dia Mirza and shared photos on social media of how they were adopting environment friendly techniques and taking a step towards the preservation of the environment. "Beat Plastic Pollution 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!" wrote Alia Bhatt.
