New Delhi, June 5 (IANS) Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain on Tuesday urged the people to minimise the use of plastic and not use single-use plastic material at all.

"The Minister stressed the need for minimising the use of plastic in daily life. He noted the adverse effects of plastic waste -- clogging of water channels, plastic deposit in bodies of cattle, non-biodegradability of plastic waste etc. He dissuaded the use of plastic, especially single-use plastic," an official statement said.
Hussain also stressed the role of children in environmental conservation and tree plantation and asked the youngsters to spread the message of "no use of plastic".
The Acting Chief Justice said that two natural features of Delhi -- the Aravalli range and the Yamuna River -- have been under constant environment threat despite monitoring by the Supreme Court and he High Court in the last three decades.
