US adopts plan to phase out single-use plastics at national parks

The US government on Thursday announced plans to phase out single-use plastics on public lands, including the country's famous national parks, by 2032. Much of the single-use plastic waste generated in federally run national parks, wildlife refuges and conservation lands comes from water bottles, bags or utensils, all of which are being targeted in the phaseout.

      Single-use plastics like water bottles and utensils are major contributors to plastic pollution, and this plan aims to address that issue.

              We must maintain our environment at all cost.Some countries that people visit are not allowed to bring a plastic water bottle in a park.This prevents littering.

                This is a noble course, plastic pollution has been a menace for far too long, its time we all embrace its phase out.
