Pupils at an elementary school in India have joined the global fight against plastic pollution with an ad campaign aligned with the goals of today’s UN World Environment Day.
These are some of the ads that the students created.

Plastic, it’s everywhere.
We humans are responsible for it. We use plastic a lot — from packaging to bottling. We use it every morning. How? Let me explain.
Those tiny chunks in your soap or even cream are sometimes plastic from the packaging. Now when you wash off the product it either goes down the sink or in the shower drain. Eventually the plastic reaches the sea, and there you go, an animal ate it and you are now a murderer.
You want to prove yourself innocent. Well, then, you are going to have to keep this in mind: “Kill plastic before it kills you.”
Now you are probably wondering, “How do you kill plastic?” Well, you can start off by using cloth bags, buying reusable products, picking up free plastic and monitoring your plastic waste.
This is very important because we are killing animals and ruining our environment. And on top of that, we are not conserving the earth for our future generation.
So are you with me? Let us clean up our mess!
