Awareness Drive for Single-Use Plastic at Vasant Kunj

Awareness drive for single-use plastic at vasant kunj

Plastic came to our life as a boon as it was easy to carry anything including liquid in it but with population growth, the use of plastic also increased. Nowadays single-use plastic is used which cannot be reused and has to be thrown after using once. These single-use plastics include bags, cups, bottles, plates, and other crockery items. They are dumped as landfills which in future affect the agricultural fields, thrown on roads or sometimes they also block the drainage system, which shows that it can neither be dumped nor be destroyed by burning or throwing in seas and oceans. The only solution left for this is to reduce or avoid using single-use plastics.

We all feel bad when we see a stray dog or a cow eating food along with the polybag or when we see heap garbage nearby our location or anywhere.

But will this feel bad only works? No, it will never, we all have to come ahead and work toward it to reduce the garbage production because we humans are the only one who generates the waste.
