Stop selling raw fruits and vegetables in plastic and Styrofoam in Safal booths

Mother dairy! please set an example by eliminating single use plastic/styrofoam wrappings from fruits and vegetables at Safal booths. 

Fruits and vegetables like Bananas/Apples/Papaya and many others have
non-recyclable plastic/Styrofoam wrappings. All these wrappings do not have life
after single use and they end up in the ever mounting mixed waste heaps/landfills or burnt in unattended areas producing fatal gases like methane and dioxin, and polluting the ground water. These are causing various health hazards to your own end consumers.

The same Safal booth sells a particular fruit or vegetable both in pre-packed and loose form, which leads one to believe that the pre-packed version is simply offered for convenience or to maximize profits. However when one considers the huge amount of plastic that is used for making this packaging it wouldn't be hard to believe that the damage to the environment would be the same or even more than that which plastic carrier bags cause. There is not reason why fruit and vegetables(with very rare exceptions) can't be sold in their natural form by weight. 

All such plastic produced is designed to be used only once and then thrown away. 

Today the world produces more than 300 million tonnes of plastic waste every year. that is nearly equivalent to the weight of entire human population. about 60% of plastic waste ends up in landfill, or oceans or other natural environment. 

Request is stop usage of these not-required single use wrappings in
all your stores and branches and setup a strict culture of no-single
use plastic. : Styrofoam, plastic packaging, NWPP, synthetic  bags.

The way Safal has been successful in setting up the international
standards of quality in fruits and vegetables. I am sure if you take
up this concern effectively, it would not only benefit the nation
directly, it would set an example for many and set a much required culture of EPR
(extended producer responsibility) in other related and non-related
businesses.
