Plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land: Mushahidullah

Forty Eight years ago, on April 22, 1970, millions of people took to the streets to protest the negative impacts of 150 years of industrial development.

President of Earth.org, Kathleen Rogers best sums it up: "In the U.S. and around the world, smog was becoming deadly and evidence was growing that pollution led to developmental delays in children".

The global ecological awareness was growing, and the US Congress and President Nixon responded quickly.

Now, around one billion people in 192 countries are involved in Earth Day events each year, which include signing petitions, meeting officials, planting trees, and cleaning up their towns and roads.

On the occasion of Earth Day, CHTA is pleased to announce the planned introduction of a new section in the CHTA website's Knowledge Center, dedicated to research, best practices and practical information to help guide hoteliers, their employees and guests in better understanding how they can help reduce the harmful effects from the proliferation of plastics.
