Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday laid emphasis on increasing the use of jute-made products giving up plastic-made ones as plastic now has become a great threat to the environment globally.

"Plastic has become a huge problem for the world; plastic causes pollution. Sometimes we saw it blocks the drainage system and also canals. Wherever there is plastic, you’ll find problem there," she said. 

The Prime Minister was speaking at the function of World Environment Day, Tree Fair and Campaign for Tree Plantation at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC).

She said when Awami League came to power in 1996, it took steps to ban the use of plastic products and find out its alternative.
