More than a 100 million tonnes of plastic are produced world wide each year. The “THROW AWAY CULTURE” of ours results in the same finding their way into the city’s drainage system, thus causing inconvenience and creating an unhygienic environment. People are so accustomed to plastic, that they find it a difficulty to part with and hence DEGRADABLE PLASTICS should be brought into effect to reduce the usage of plastic in our country. INTRODUCTION The explosion of technology, though makes our lives smooth and comfortable,I think that it also bring with it certain disasters.
The disaster is made by the users of the technology-the human beings. It is our behavior which affects the environment. It may be global warming, depletion of natural resources, seasonal uncertainties, or serious health problems, we are responsible in some or the other way to make it happen. Here comes the question, how informed, sensible and responsible we are as consumers? We are least bothered about our behavior, causing more harm to our planet. Unless we engage ourselves in ecologically oriented or pro-environmental behavior, we are on the way to perish.
The protection of the physical environment requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a wider representation of various sections and communities of the society at large. Towards success and technological excellence, we human beings have caused much harm to planet earth. We consume valuables and irreplaceable resources, like coal and oil, at an ever-increasing rate. Items like paper, plastics, glass and fabrics are consumed in limitless amounts and wasted thoughtlessly. If we continue to do so, humanity and planet earth will soon be in danger.
In olden days people use to carry cloth bags or jute bags to the shop to purchase grocery or other things but when plastic is discovered it became part and parcel of our lives, what ever we do we use plastic in day to life, whether it is a plastic mug, plastic bucket or plastic containers we use in kitchen. The biggest problem with the plastic bags which are used for packing of milk, oil, salt etc they become big environmental problem. When we go for shopping the shop owners give plastic bag which is handy but which is destroying the environment.
