Single-use plastic products or SUPs are products made from that kind of plastic that can be used only once and only for a short duration of time before it needs to be disposed of. This is, perhaps, the most dangerous kind of plastic in existence which severely affects the environment and our health.
This is so because single-use plastics are not reusable. They are thus most likely to end up in the seas than reusable options, polluting waters thus as well.
Out of all plastics thus, single-use plastics are to be completely avoided. In this sense, in India, a ban on them is implemented from April 2023.
