I visited the landfill close to Gangtok today along with the students who are a part of a Leadership Development Programme. I was filled with a lot of emotions ! Angry, shocked, restless and helpless were a few of the intense ones. I got to see the horrors of what we're inflicting on our planet. Although Sikkim has banned the use of plastics, the indirect use of plastics still remain a matter of grave concern. On-line shopping is a sort of a trend these days. And the bubble wraps that come with your small or big bundles of happiness, My Oh My !!! The landfill was filled with tonnes of them. On-line dealers use layers and layers of plastics whether or not the product is delicate !! I know that the use of plastics cannot be stopped outright but it can be reduced to an extent or replaced. The workers I saw working inside the huge hills of waste touched my emotional side. I mean you see another human like you working in a land filled with waste surrounded by a pungent smell outright hazardous to your health, the waste generated by you, I was hurt ! Therefore I bring forward this petition to reduce the use of plastics ! Our planet is at risk and we need to  do something about it !
