Ban Single Use Disposable Plastic all across India
Although plastic was a great durable alternative to the many things we took from nature, the lifestyle and waste management of the human race has turned plastic to bane. Recent reports suggest the presence of plastic from hills to oceans. A plastic bag was found at the Mariana Trench, while the Himalayas and the Alps have plastic waste too. On my humble request, the Environment Minister of Maharashtra Ramdas Kadam imposed a ban on single use disposable plastic- cups, bags, straws, cutlery Etc. The impact can be seen. One less bag, one less straw of plastic used by us, is one less piece of non biodegradable waste going into the ocean. Although in India 19 States have imposed such a ban, only a few implement it seriously. It’s time that India as a country imposes a ban on the production, sale and consumption of Single Use Disposable Plastic

Support Ban on Plastic Disposables in Uttarakhand
We, the citizens of Uttarakhand, support the ban on disposable plastics because: 1. This is the law of our nation and state, and its a citizen’s duty to respect the court and administrative orders. 2. Plastic / thermacol disposables such as bags, plates, glasses, spoons, forks, straws, tumbers are used for minutes or seconds. These non-essential plastics will pollute soil, water or air for next 600-800 years. 3. Plastic bags, plastic / thermocol disposables are clogging our nallahs, rivers and dams. Plastic disposables are causing floods across urban India, including Dehradun 4. Consuming food served or packed in plastic and thermacol leads to slow poisoning that can cause depression, autoimmune diseases, thyroid problems and cancer. 5. Plastic bags kills thousands of animals in Uttarakhand, including cows, elephants and deer. 6. Over 10,000 jobs will become available in Dehradun city itself for making cloth and paper bags, pattals and kullads due to ban on disposable single-use plastics. हम, उत्तराखंड के नागरिक, डिस्पोजेबल प्लास्टिक पर प्रतिबंध का समर्थन करते हैं क्योंकि: 1. यह हमारे देश और राज्य का कानून है, और इसके नागरिकों का कर्तव्य अदालत और प्रशासनिक आदेशों का सम्मान करना है। 2. बैग, प्लेट्स, चश्मा, चम्मच, कांटे, भूसे, टॉन्ज जैसे कि प्लास्टिक / थर्मैक्ल डिस्प्लेबल्स मिनट या सेकंड के लिए उपयोग किए जाते हैं। ये गैर-आवश्यक प्लास्टिक अगले 600-800 वर्षों के लिए मिट्टी, पानी या हवा को प्रदूषित करेंगे। 3. प्लास्टिक की थैली, प्लास्टिक / थर्मोकल डिस्पैबिलल्स हमारे नाल, नदियों और बांधों को रोकते हैं। देहरादून समेत, शहरी भारत भर में प्लास्टिक के डिस्पैबल्स बाढ़ पैदा कर रहे हैं 4. प्लास्टिक और थर्मैक्ल में भरे हुए खाद्य पदार्थों का सेवन करने से विषाक्तता धीमा हो जाता है जिससे डिप्रेशन, ऑटोइम्यून बीमारियां, थायरॉयड की समस्याएं और कैंसर हो सकता है। 5. प्लास्टिक बैग ने उत्तराखंड में हजारों जानवरों को मार डाला, जिसमें गायों, हाथियों और हिरण शामिल थे। 6. देहरादून के शहर में 10,000 से अधिक नौकरियां उपलब्ध हो जाएंगी, जो कपड़ों और पेपर बैग, पट्टल और क्लेडस के लिए डिस्पोजेबल सिंगल-उपयोग प्लास्टिक पर प्रतिबंध के कारण ही उपलब्ध हो जाएंगी।

Plastic free shopping
Usually I purchase all products from lounge wear to lingerie wear from Jockey India because of the quality and the comfort for the past 10 years. And today also I purchased their products and I’m happy for the quality of the cloth they maintain throughout the years but today something got stuck in my mind while buying their products which made me feel guilty for the purchase I have made. Its not about the quality of the cloth but the quality of plastic wrapped around each product. The grade of the plastic is of good quality which they used to pack the products and those plastics goes to the dustbin once the product is purchased and brought it to home. The amount of plastic which is used to pack those products would be above 50 microns which makes it recyclable but the plastics in a developing countries like us, there is difficulty to collect the waste and to process. But these plastics if not properly disposed or recycled may cause environment changes like change in temperature, global emission, increased carbon-dioxide and may take infinite time for degradation. The greenhouse gas emissions are still rising—by 4% since 2015. Collection, processing, and marketing are each critical to the success of chemical recycling and energy recovery. Today, with few exceptions, these technologies remain developmental and have not yet proven to be sustainable in a competitive market. And I hope their company being a leading brand in India and rest of major countries, with lots of customers and the sale margins they have, are always great in numbers would consider my suggestion and give us a eco-friendly purchase, As a socially responsible person, I would like to add up on replacing a plastic bag with a paper bag or cloth bag. When a retail outlet of them, can use a paper bag for the products we purchase, I would be really happy when their company takes such a initiative and lead us in changing our earth as a eco-friendly place and to help all of us together to create a better future of our upcoming generations.

For the awareness of local people we organised a ECO FRIENDLY CYCLE RALLY from Bantra MSPC High School to Santragachi Jheel to aware local people about plastic pollution and it's harmful effects on our ECOSYSTEM as well as AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM. After reaching at our destination we saw the situation of the jheel is too disappointing that's why we take this action to draw the attention of Government Authorities to take necessary steps. Ponds, lakes and rivers are very important for our environment. Now days in our local area many water lands are polluted with plastic and non biodegradable materials which are very harmful for AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM. So it's our responsibility to "SAVE WATER LANDS" & "SAVE THE PLANET".

Refillable Packaging for Personal Care Products
We use a variety of personal care products and rarely stop, for a while, to realize the alarming rate at which we consume and discard the product packaging, mainly plastic - Shampoos, Body Lotion, Facewash, Body Wash, and many more! Amidst the COVID pandemic, I have got an opportunity to reflect on multiple spheres of life, and making baby steps for a sustainable environment is one of those. I have already contacted Dabur India to express my concern over the fact that there is no alternative to plastic packaging available for one of their products today, of which I am a regular consumer. Through this petition, I would like to appeal to all the major Personal Care brands, in India, and around the world, to switch to the following alternatives for packaging, in the decreasing order of preference: 1. Refillable Packaging 2. Refill Stations 3. Plastic container refund mechanism for recycling It is statistically proven that among beauty packaging, the major chunk is discarded after single-use and a very small portion reaches the recycling center. Plastic reduction is any day more impactful than recycling. Plastic packaging of beauty products is the norm that we need to break. MAKE REFILLABLE PACKAGING THE NEW NORMAL!

Reduction in wastage of plastic
We have been using shampoos dishwash liquids etc and rather than going for a refill pack we are forced to buy plastic bottles which are of no use later . Rather than wasting these bottles we should have collection depots at near by stores where we can submit these bottles which would be collected by the company and reused for producing more products after minimal cleaning This would reduce use of plastic and could also cut down prices of these products
