This report provides a critical look at current efforts to curb plastic pollution in India, and offers recommendations to drastically reduce and eventually eliminate plastic pollution. The implementation of the waste and brand audits and the publication of this report is supported by GAIA and the Plastic Solutions Fund.
This report uses data from household waste assessments and brand audits (WABA) conducted by Mother Earth Foundation (MEF) in six cities and seven municipalities across the country in the past five years. GAIA extrapolated the data to calculate daily and yearly plastic usage throughout the country in order to provide new quantitative evidence about plastic pollution in the Philippines. (2019)
