Plastic waste

The increase in plastic waste is directly proportional to the increase in plastic usage. Plastic has become a cheap substitute to almost everything on the market. Banana leaves in hotels, tumblers, spoons, packing materials and much more has been replaced by its plastic alternatives. People prefer it as it is cost effective. Use and throw plasticdsc00733 cutlery, reduces the cost of maintenance and is also hygienic. But its effect on the environment is not considered by many. Recently I was in the Reliance Fresh supermarket. I carry my own bag to these shops and I don’t take plastic bags from them. But the guard was reluctant to let my bag in for some stupid security reasons. I had to raise my voice to take my bag inside. Big chain of supermarkets like the Reliance, Spencers, Nilgris must promote customers bringing their own bags. Maybe they can reward them a few more points in the loyalty cards, or something like that. As responsible corporates, big houses must set an example to its employees and customers. This can make a lot of change.

If you are having any function or party at your place, don’t forget to go green. Avoid/reduce plastic usage. We can stop getting bottled waters and order a big mineral water can and serve in small re-usable/re-cyclable cups. That will do good both for the budget and the environment.
