India generates tones of plastic waste yearly, Plastic waste dumped into the oceans and streets
Million’s birds and thousands of pet animals die each year globally from ingesting plastic or by getting tangled according to estimates.
The plastic ban in India is honestly a failure till now. Bans will not be successfully imposed if people are not made to understand why the product has to be banned.
Most shopkeepers and vegetable sellers whom we spoke to said the government needs to start with regulating polythene manufacturing and provide low-cost alternatives.
We have seen animals eating food with plastic bags & dying, Plastic is harmful to the environment.
