Be a Part of the Solution, Not a Part of the Pollution
Everyday around 15,000 tonnes of plastic is generated in India and only 9,000 tonnes gets collected.
Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects in the environment which adversely affects wildlife, wild habitat, marine animals and humans. Plastic has potential harmful effects that could prove to be carcinogenic or promote endocrine disruption.According to the survey in 2018, about 380 million tonnes of plastic is produced worldwide each year out of which hardly one quarter gets recycled. Some researchers suggest that by 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the oceans.
To save our future generations and for a healthy life we all can join hands towards this goal and say “No to Plastic”.
Here’s How We Can Achieve the “No Plastic” Goal:
- Minimisation is the key. Make small changes first and get rid of all plastic items at home including small spoons for masala.
- Avoid plastic bags during shopping and don’t use plastic containers to bring back the leftovers from restaurants.
- Always carry your cloth bag with you for shopping!
- Choose wooden utensils over plastic kitchenware.
- Avoid buying plastic water bottles in the market. Carry your own bottle with you.
