AcknowledgementUNEP’s Tide Turners was adapted for India when it was introduced as a campaign in 2019.The implementation partners, WWF India and Centre for Environment Education modifiedthe toolkit to adapt it to the Indian context, developed campaign strategy and implementedthree phases of Tide Turners Plastic Challenge during 2019-2021.The campaign has involved over 3.5 lakh youth across India generating inspiring storiesfrom the ground. Responding to the challenges brought about by the COVID 19 pandemic,there has been increasing interest and partnerships in the digital model of the programme.Partnerships with the national eco club programme of the Ministry of Environment, Forest andClimate Change, Bharat Scouts and Guides, State governments and many other organisationsand networks have sparked a cascading effect for the campaign on single use plastics.TABLE OF CONTENTSI.

The day isobserved to raise awareness about thegrave issues of plastic pollution and theserious threat that it poses to the naturalenvironment ranging from land to marinelife. As plastic bags take around 100500 years to decompose, it creates landpollution as it is dumped in landfills andproves hazardous to the marine animals ifit gets washed into oceans. So, it becomesimperative to raise an alarm against theill-effects of single-use plastic bags.The campaign started by Zero WasteEurope’s Bag Free World, became a globalinitiative to educate people on the harmfuleffects of plastics. The day, July 3 has beendesignated as the International Plastic BagFree Day to promote the use of eco-friendlyitems such as paper bags or cloth bagsinstead of plastic bags and get rid of singleuse plastic bags.
