It's your garbage. Reduce it. Reuse it. Recycle it.

As consumers, we are never going to stop consuming and this in turn will always result in garbage production. India now has more population than ever and hence the garbage disposal sites are overloaded and improper management of the municipal waste takes place. Environmental protection laws are stringent, but there's no power given to the authority for their enforcement. Therefore exploitation of the resources take place.

Plastic and dry waste are burnt in India. It's a common practice in rural as well as in urban setting. Plastic comes from crude oil hence needs conservation. Being a limited resource it should be ruthlessly recycled till an alternative is found.

Through this petition, I hereby urge you all people to use less plastic in any form. We all are intelligent people, we can devise ways to find solutions for this pollution problem which is nothing but a design choice gone wrong. Eco-friendly ways for packaging should be invented.
