Ram Vilas Paswan, the Union Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, talks about the several types of plastics and how we should treat them. "The thinnest type is the most harmful of the several types. It ought to be banned", he said. He also highlights the needs and utility of reusing and recycling plastic. "Instead of littering the public space with plastic which harms the health of animals and humans alike, we should recycle plastic. We can make compost or make other plastic products or even generate energy by recycling plastic. This will also generate new employment opportunities."
