Nairobi Feb 12 (IANS) As the world prepares to mark Valentine s Day the UN Environment Programme head on Monday urged people around the world to make a bold move and "break up" with plastic.



"This Valentine s Day we are urging people to break up with throwaway bottles straws utensils and bags and help turn the tide on plastic waste " head of UN Environment Programme Erik Solheim said.

A two-minute Valentine s Day film "It s not me it s you" explores dependence on single-use plastics through the story of a difficult break-up but the video has a happy ending: A newfound love in sustainable alternatives.

"Our love-in with disposable plastics has a toxic side effect " Solheim said about the film.
