Vidya Balan joins forces with Bhamla Foundation to fight against single-use plastic
The Bhamla Foundation, in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme and the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, has been dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues for many years. "We must eliminate unnecessary plastic items like water bottles, bags, trays, cutlery, plates, cups, and food packaging from our lives this World Environment Day," emphasises Vidya Balan.
The Jalsa actress further added, “I firmly believe that it is our duty to protect the environment for future generations. We need to be conscious of our choices and take action to reduce our plastic footprint. We must be responsible consumers and choose sustainable options. And we need to demand stakeholders to take necessary actions to reduce plastic pollution.”
On the occasion of World Environment Day, the critically acclaimed actress encourages individuals worldwide to take responsibility for their actions and eliminate unnecessary plastic items from their lives. This year, the global effort to beat single-use plastic pollution has become a flagship campaign of the International G20 Summit, as well as being supported by India's Honourable Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
“Vidya Balan has always stood for environment protection, and climate change, earlier she supported anti-air pollution initiatives and now anti-single-use plastic. We are very grateful that Vidya Balan has joined this initiative that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has repeatedly conveyed, urging people to save the country from the plastic menace. Climate change is real and it's time we take it seriously. We are supported by the Ministry of Forestry and Environment alongside the state and the central government as well as the United Nations,” said Asif and Saher Bhamla of the Bhamla Foundation.
“Together we can make a difference to ensure we leave a beautiful and healthy world for future generations,” concluded Vidya Balan.
