The world slowly continues to combat the widespread use of plastics that do not biodegrade in landfills.
India’s capital city Delhi has introduced a ban on disposable plastic.
Cutlery, bags, cups and other forms of single-use plastic were prohibited by the National Green Tribunal (NGT).
There is particular concern in the country about the amount of plastic waste it produces. According to the Times of India, it is one of the top four polluters in the world.
The ban affects the whole National Capital Territory (NCT) area of Delhi.
