Plastic Pollution Danger to River and Marine Life


This year World Environment Day is another reminder that our river and marine life now in a new danger is high concentrations of plastic pollution entering our freshwater rivers and oceanic systems, the experts said yesterday in a seminar jointly organized by Environment and Social Development Organization-ESDO and Department of Environment-DoE.

Land-based pollution can reach the ocean and recent reports confirm high concentrations of plastic, particularly those waterways situated close to heavily populated urban areas in Bangladesh. As part of the World Environment Day 2018 celebration, ESDO and DoE jointly organized this seminar on "Plastic Pollution in Bangladesh and its Impact on Environment and Health".

“We can’t escape this plastic pollution! says Mr. Abdullah Al Mohsin Chowdhury, Secretary in Charge, Ministry of Environment and Forest and Climate Change, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh. As chief guest of the seminar Mr. Chowdhury said, “The presence of plastics in our inland freshwater systems magnifies the effects of plastic pollution dramatically. This brings the direct impacts much closer to a significantly larger portion of the global population than previously thought.”
