In commemoration of World Environment Day 2019, an international campaign to highlight the impact of single-use plastics was launched. This initiative is the brainchild of A Plastic Planet – a non-profit social impact movement. People were asked to take a photo of the one thing they want to go plastic-free and post it on social media platforms using #oneplasticfreeday.
