Speaking shortly after the event, Mirza said, "With India hosting the World Environment Day on June 5, we are mobilising a movement to beat plastic pollution. We want to create a mindset that outlast the celebrations. Public participation and civil awareness must continue to grow about the single-use plastic pollution."
