Today we were briefed about the competition by Ms. Rukhsana Haque. Many vendors nowadays use plastic polymer bags which are just thrown out after use. They remain on earth as waste for millions of years, so we are spreading awareness for using paper bags over plastic polymer bags. We thought it was time to make people around us aware and to reduce pollution on earth.
While plastic is an environment hazard, people will continue to use plastic bags unless and alternative is available. Despite several drives vendors continue to use the same. There is a need to change the mind set of people. If paper bag is available with the vendor for a small sum, people will be forced to take it.
