Indian ships to ban single-use plastic items

Nov 04, 2019 14:37 IST

Come January 1st 2020, Indian ships will ban a variety of single-use plastic items on board. Some of the items include potato chips bags, ice cream containers and some microwave dishes. Even foreign ships entering Indian waters will not be allowed to carry single-use plastic items and will have to declare them, according to the Directorate General of Shipping. The move comes as part of a larger initiative to make India free of plastics.
