How to reduce the use of plastic bags-
by Simran Vedvyas
Plastic bags-100% non-biodegradable, stay forever if not recycled and carelessly tossed they reach our oceans forming Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch and Atlantic. Ways of reducing this impact include becoming aware of plastic consumption and waste management, naturally reduce, reuse, recycle, saying ‘no’ to plastic bags, carrying own cloth bag for grocery shopping, thinking durable & not disposable, purchasing items made from recycled materials with less packaging. It’s time that we consider personal bans on plastic bags appreciating the businesses that have stopped offering customers plastic bags, switch to reusable baskets and if we do end up using plastic bags, ensure recycling.
