Plastic Pollution as per Ministry of Environment, India generates 16000 ton/day out of which only 9000 ton/day being collected and the remaining pollutes the soil, clogs drains, pollutes waters and kills the animals with its indigestive nature. It is evident that improper handling of solid waste and indiscriminate disposal in open spaces, road margins, tank beds, and etcetera, give rise to numerous potential risks to the environment and to human health.

To prevent this plastic pollution, IYFS works on  1) Create Awareness about the hazards created by discarded plastics; the team defines 'awareness' as behavioural change of plastics consumption (plastics consumption to be reduced).   2) Make Available Alternatives to Single-use Plastics  3) Scale-up Plastic Recycling Unit through Training Rag-Pickers

The project also intended to help the rag-pickers with health check-ups. The unit shall create a source of livelihood initially for about 120-150 women who are under poverty line and help rag-pickers. In addition to this, any number of Self-Help Group women can be a part of this project.
