plastic usage

As far reaction of constituents of any plastic with hot liquids is concerned, may be fatal.generally , tea cups are mostly used by us and plastic glasses also for water and cold drinks.
but alternate for plastic cups for tea was given by LALU PRASAD YADAV, THE THEN RAIL MINISTER.
but it was ignored by politicians and no social worker supported it.
you know well, it was" earthen kullad" with natural smell.
at railway station, it can be used and at some tea stalls even today flavoured tea is served in kullads and people ask for it.
why we hesitate in adopting our culture.
why we want to show that we are modern by using fatal materials like plastic. more

It is a good move but there should be proper arrangement for it crushing and diposal more  
Kulhads do not decompose easily and it may take centuries for them to decompose. Also the raw material required for them (clay) is not easily available and is a rare natural resource. Kulhads are also not very hygienic - in the way they are transported and stored (both at delivery and usage point).
They are expensive and the supply is short which leads to vendors reusing them - again leading to hygiene and taste issue.
Inside one of the very prominent water park (Wet-n-Joy) in Lonavala (Pune - Mumbai highway) there is a tea shop selling Kulhad Chai at exorbitant prices. I saw the vendor reusing the Kulhads in fact he asked all the customers to return the Kulhads after drinking the tea. He then put the used Kulhads (without any washing) inside coal fired stove. Warmed them for a few minutes and served the tea to next set of customers.
Is this is the way Kulhads are going to be used ?

The best environment friendly is to carry own set of cups / glasses / tumblers unless a non polluting and reusable material is invented. more  
If not destroyed by yourself, it is quite likely that the same will be used and that too without washing more  
In Mathura and Vrindavan even lassi is served in earthen glass and according to me drinking lassi in earthen glass increases its test manifold alike tea. However, use of earth made cups and glasses in large scale may create another problem of their disposal being parched before use, which will take decades in decomposing. more  
Not only kulads, but other eco-friendly and reusable products be promoted to save the mother nature. The products which are natural are more eco friendly and even if it adds some costs it is sensible to bear it for the future of our planet and the coming generations more
