Mumbai has criminalised plastic bags
On Mumbai’s Versova beach, it was once hard to see the sand amid the endless sea of plastic bags and rubbish. The long stretch of coast had essentially turned into a dumping site until volunteers banded together to clean it up.
A few months later, olive ridley turtles began nesting there for the first time in 20 years.
Now municipal authorities are taking a new step in the battle against the plastic waste that afflicts Mumbai, and many other cities across the country, by criminalising the use of plastic bags – with fines of up to 25,000 rupees (£276) and jail sentences for repeat offenders.
India actually has a low per capita plastic consumption of just 11kg compared to western countries, where up to 10 times that is consumed each year, but its cities and water sources are visibly affected by plastic pollution.
