New Delhi flooded with harmful plastic bags

A ban on plastic bags was put in place a year ago but people in India's capital still use them and pollution is growing.

    It’s been a year since plastic bags were banned in New Delhi, but 12 months on, the scheme has failed to make the Indian capital cleaner or greener.

    Environmentalists argue the ban's lack of success points to haphazard regulation of waste disposal across India.
