Story

The issue of garbage and wastage all around the world is one of the major concerns for our country. Disposal of the garbage is the main thing and usage of plastic is still prominent in many areas.  It is our responsibility to take the first step towards change and contribute to the cause to the best of our ability. I am kavita verma, a youth for India fellow. I am staying in this Emdi, village in the Rajsamand district for the last 9 months. The village is situated in the lap of mount Aravali. But because of continuous plastic disposal and burning of plastic are destroying the beauty of the village. The usage of plastic is very prominent over here and this has caused environmental pollution and thus affected the health of people over here. So we have taken the initiative to open a "bartan bank" where we will lend crockeries for small functions and gatherings to discourage the use of plastic. because 90℅ of all plastic is dumped there is plastic crockery. So the "Bartan bank" will have utensils made up of steel, including cups, plates, glasses and spoons which the residents can borrow free of cost. The idea behind this is to minimize the use of plastic and try to eliminate it as much as possible. This initiative is for the community and this will benefit the whole village. As the community cannot afford the steel utensils, they need our support to maintain the health and sanitation of their village. I urge and request everyone to contribute to the best of their ability and spread the message around. This is our first step towards a better India. 

The funds will be strictly used for establishing the "bartan bank" also known as "crockery bank" for the community.
