Ban the Bag

Have you seen a Plastic Bag? You shouldn’t have, they are banned in #Sikkim and #Darjeeling. #InternationalPlasticBagFreeDay 3 July
Plastic bags choke jhoras, contribute to landslides, harm precious agricultural land and marine life and release toxic chemicals when burnt. Their flimsy nature, lack of segregation and storage at source make it the least collected waste by the informal recycling sector in India. Plastic bags have extremely short usage time, internationally, on an average a plastic bag is used for just 25 minutes. Plastic bags are extremely unfair on the future generations. Annie Leonard, rightly say says this about Plastic Bags, “We don’t need them and they aren’t worth the massive problems they cause. There are easy replacements that are better for public health, the environment and the economy.”#banthebag #ZeroWasteHimalayaPossibilities #ZeroWaste#breakfreefromplastic https://www.plasticbagfreeday.org/banthbagcampaign.jpg
