Plastic Pollution: Demanding Ban on Plastic


say no to plastic
Undoubtedly plastic has remained our friend for ages. We have been making use of plastic in everything we do - going to the market, stocking up food items, decorating our homes, using plastic mugs and buckets, and what not. Plastic is all pervasive!

But how many of you realize how detrimental plastic is to the environment? When exposed in the environment, plastic turns toxic. It not only pollutes the environment, but also is extremely harmful for those who collect and carry plastic waste. Plastic proves harmful to water bodies, polluting them and making survival difficult for marine creatures. Plastic is hazardous and turns toxic, clogging drainage and water channels.

As a concerned global citizen, I demand a ban on plastics. I take my jute bag along to the market so that I do not leave plastic footprints.
I am working toward this end to contribute my bit for the environment. I support the loud hue and cry against the use of plastic and try to take every step that is in line with the environment.

This includes the use of plastic containers. Do you know plastic can kill? Heating plastic or storing hot food in plastic containers can release harmful carcinogens into your stored food, which can turn it toxic.

I love plastic containers and have a huge collection. But now that I have realized how toxic this could be to my family, I choose not to:

  • use microwave-safe plastic containers
  • heat food in plastic
  • reuse disposable water bottles
  • make food in plastic 



With global warming spreading its arms around the planet, what are you doing to save mother nature? Do you call for a ban on plastic? Do you support the anti-plastic movement?

What are you taking along with you to the market today - plastic bag or jute/handmade carry bag?
Little steps taken by all of us will certainly do good to the environment as well as the planet. It's high time we realize our responsibility toward the environment. We still have time! Do not leave the burden for the next generation, because whatever steps we will take toward saving the planet from climate change and global warming today will give time for the coming generations to breathe.

What are you doing for your future generations? I reject the use of plastic bags wherever I can and demand a ban on plastic! All of us can take steps to raise awareness about how the use of plastic is proving harmful to the environment and life on earth. In many countries, this forms part of the school curriculum so that our coming generations are prepared in advance for the times ahead.
