Towards a ‘Plastic Free’ Environment

Plastic is present in almost every aspect of modern life, from water bottles to aircraft. Without it, our lives would not be the same. However, it is now considered an environmental evil because of the havoc that plastic waste wreaks. We see it on our streets, in our rivers and lakes, on our beaches and even in our deepest oceans.

Usage of plastic is one of the major reasons for environmental pollution in India and this is wreaking havoc on the flora and fauna reserves across the globe. It’s been observed that even with the plastic ban in 25 states of India, 15000 tonnes of plastic is still procured from cities on a daily basis.
