Re: Plastic bags being replaced by another synthetic material
Of late there has been a movement against the environment killer- plastic. Lot of awareness has come among people and alternate is being used. One of these are the woven plastic bags in place of transparent bags. I don’t know whether the material used in the woven synthetic bags is environment friendly. Even Government authorities are silent on. May it be too late for identifying another monster to do the environment damage?
It’s high time we should address this issue.
In case anyone in the circle have knowledge about it may kindly update us. more
But at the same time currently there is no substitute for plastic. It's role at least in the packaging industry is very critical.
The government's (state and central) to reduce the total plastic footprint have currently banned only the single use (non-recyclable) plastic materials.
All forms of plastic which can be recycled can be manufactured / used. Since woven plastic bags can be recycled they are not banned.
Whether government ban or not, we as responsible citizens to save our planet should stop using (or minimize as much as possible) all products made of plastic by using alternatives available.
Simple steps like using cloth bags / backpacks (for grocery / shopping / vegetables / fruits), steel plates / tumblers (in place of disposable utensils) during parties will definitely go a long way in reducing total plastic footprint. more
I have been making hand made paper carry bags but none of the shop keepers were ready to take it as they say they are getting very cheap plastic carry bags then why should they buy costly paper carry bags. Even after having a ban on the plastic carry bags the people are not ready to give up plastic carry bags.

Eco-friendly solution for this is:
Rubber. Yes, our good old friend RUBBER.
It's even better than paper as we need not cut trees into logs to extract rubber. The tree remain standing and live while rubber is being collected from them. It's similar to milching the cattle and not killing them for flesh.
So simple! more
