NBSE notifies heads of institutions on single use plastics
Nagaland Board of School Education has once again notified all the Heads of Registered Institutions that in pursuance of Government of Nagaland notification No.UDD/7-GEN/07-PWM/2018(Pt-I) dated 11.03.2022 on imposing “Ban on Single-Use Plastics in Nagaland”, all schools have been informed for proper dissemination of awareness on Plastic Waste Management with regard to ban of Single-Use Plastics (SUPs), with a view to eradicate the menace of plastics and the serious environmental and ecological challenges posed by rampant use of it.
SUPs, otherwise known as disposable plastic items are non-biodegradable and therefore contaminate the environment. The single use plastics include plastic bags, plastic water bottles, soda bottles, straws, plastic plates, plastic cups, plastic spoons, food packaging containers, plastic shopping bags etc. Single-Use Plastics mostly end up in landfill sites which is a growing concern as it may take years to decompose and potentially leak pollutants into the soil and water. If plastic wastes are not properly disposed of, they get carried away by wind as litter or washed away by rain or travel via storm drains into rivers and streams which pose a threat to the environment and human health.
In this regard, all institutions have been directed to inform and educate the students about the drastic impacts of disposal of wastes from plastics and plastic products which can lead to human health hazards, environmental pollution including natural environment beauty deterioration, entanglement and death of aquatic organisms, sewage system blockage etc, and to adopt measures to avoid its usage.
Further, as given in the academic calendar 2022, all Heads of institutions should take measures to practice plastic free campus and advocate elimination of single use plastic items.
