Alternates for single use plastics
- Plastic Bags
- Cups / Plates
- Small Bottles
This ban will cover everything from manufacturing to usage.
BIS should develop standards for alternate quickly and roll out so there can be capacity developed for alternate products. more
One hears of the forthcoming ban on one-way plastic use alright, but without any khabar about what steps have been taken to fill the gap which would thus be created.
Today, as many as 50 % of the goods, be they object d'art, clothes, marble/alabaster items, tea/coffee bags, fruits/vegetables, cereals, cookies/rusks, food items like breads, buns and kulchas, crockeries/cutleries, stationery items, dry cells............the list is long, very long.........are all packed in plastic foils/sheets etc.
Banning plastic w.e.f. two weeks from today would bring about a tsunami of unthinkable proportions. The use will continue and the authorities would not know what to do, till time will wash out all good intentions and the river will continue to flow like after floods.....The ban would be forgotten.
This "decision" therefore can safely be stamped as one lacking of proper planning.
Like the GST levels, which have been receding from their initial high and unaffordable levels, leading to an open "face losing".
One fears that the recent raising of traffic violation penalties ten-fold suddenly will meet a similar fate. Within one week of their announcement, the governments of Gujarat and Maharashtra are already thinking of reducing them.

Moreover, alternatives for above items like Plastic Bags,Cups / Plates, Small Bottles, Sachets is a must, otherwise people will again go for plastic based items. I can suggest paper/ old cloth for bags. Local circle may suggest alternatives which will help GOI to direct manufacturers accordingly. more
