We all know that uncontrolled use of plastic is a disaster from a health and environmental perspective and is a serious challenge to us, our future generations and all life on the planet. Poor and developing countries and poorest of poor are the biggest victims. Yes but dont forget eventually the monster of unsustainable living will devour everyone here.

While we are banning plastic bags which are used by small vegetables vendors and shop keepers, the big companies are having a free run and continue to propogate the unmitigated disaster. Their tall claims and talk on sustainability and being purpose driven not withstanding- which in that case becomes quite meaningless and merely a PR exercise or action taken when really forced to.

Humans dont need those plastic water bottles like Bisleri, Aquafina, Pure Life, Evian, Kinley etc. It is causing far more harm than good. We must find better ways of delivering clean water. 

We dont need those plastic lined packs used to pack 50 grams of chips which are harmful, unhealthy and exorbitantly priced.

We dont need those supari, chutki, cadbury, manikchand etc in small plastic pouches.

Companies like Amazon are using huge amounts of plastic to deliver their products. Even when I used plastic bags I never used the kind of single use plastic and thermocol etc. It 10 times or much more !!

Just about 15 years ago we didnt buy our daals and rice in plastic bags and we didnt have all the stuff packed in huge amounts of plastic. We wont die if we dont do that today but we will certainly kill ourselves and the planet if we dont act fast ! A bit of inconvenience (if at all) is a tiny price to save our environment. Else we face an unmitigated disaster and unthinkable misery to humans and all life forms.

 

We must pass laws to make sure

1. In a short span time they move to sustainable packaging and maximum recycling.

- It is perfectly fine if we dont get 50 grams of potato sold as unhealthy chips sold at extortionate kind of prices

- It will be great if we get rid of those plastic bottles use to pack those extremely unhealthy soft drinks. 

- Companies like Amazon must find better ways of delivering products else the world is better of without them. The world doesnt need Amazon, Amazon needs the world !
