Pledge for a plastic free India on Gandhi Jayanti

2019 has been a year of pledge for freeing India from indiscriminate use of plastic. Prime Minister NarendraDamodarModi on his Independence Day speech at Red Fort addressed the nation calling for single use plastic from October 2nd 2019. In his heart wrenching speech Modi upholds the unique climatic features of our country that have generously contributed to the economic and cultural condition of India. His moving speech was also replete with salutations for the great national heroes whose lives have been dedicated to India’s independence struggle. He emphasized on the eternal Indian philosophies ‘SevaParmoDharmah’ and ‘SwantahSukhaayah’ that have been the motto of Gandhiji’s life.

This year’s 2nd October the nation is preparing for celebration of the 150th birthday of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi who became the omnipotent “voice of innumerable Indians” during his lifetime. His values and principles showed the nation the path to real freedom in the global platform. In keeping with ethos of Gandhiji, the government of India has been running a nationwide campaign “Swachhata He Seva” (cleanliness is service to mankind) a few weeks before every Gandhi Jayanti. This year the program will be held on 11 September in which countrymen will join hands to offer “shramadaan” and “karyanjali” to Bapuji through their toil and sweat. Prime Minister NarendraModi called for indiscriminate participation of the countrymen in schools, colleges, workplaces, neighbourhood, streets and various circles for this mega campaign on general sanitation. In keeping to the true spirit of Gandhiji’s philosophy of “collectiveness through a sense of service”, he emphasized on “community service” and “community mobilization” that every citizen should imbibe in their life.

This year’s mission of “Swachhata He Seva” campaign is banning plastic and plastic products from the grass root level. NarendraModi ascertained that enthusiastic and tireless campaign against “single use” of plastic will protect our environment from greater damages in future. He urged the countrymen to carry bags with them during shopping and not asking the retailer for providing plastic carry bags to them. He summons all the governmental and non-governmental organisations to come forward and ensure proper disposal of plastic before this Diwali. Plastic can be recycled or burnt into fuel and thus we may prevent environmental pollution to large extent. Modi is optimistic in execution of this massive task and summons every single citizen of India to inspire themselves with the principles of Mahatma Gandhi’s life.

Prime Minister concluded his inspiring his countrymen to participate in the PoshyaAbhiyaan and Fit India Movement during September. He also urged for the voluntary service of the citizens of India in SwachhtaAbhiyaan from 11 September till 2 October which marks the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. The day has been dedicated to complete abolition from plastic and move towards a green revolution. With all our might we must strive towards a plastic free world and save our Mother Earth from the harmful effects of global warming. Awareness is the first step towards such goal and it can be achieved with new resolution, new zeal and renewed strength.

Prevent Plastic Pollution and Save Life on Earth

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest threats to our civilization. Plastic deposition has reached the crisis point whose evidence is clearly borne by the oceans. Every year an estimated amount of 12 million metric tons of plastic wastes enter into the oceans endangering the aquatic lives.  The effect of plastic contamination in sea water has perpetrated into the food chain of the sea to the extent that trace amount of such wastes are found in our lip-smacking seafood platters also.

Similarly plastic is taking a massive toll on our ecological balance as it cannot be digested by Earth. It happens due to single-use plastics that are recurrently stodging up our landfills, choking our drainage system and finally contaminating into nature. The problem created by the corporate honchos must be met with strict rejection of plastic products and the onus should be taken up by each one of us.Its time to reject things that end up destroying our natural resources for a lifetime and bring about innovative changes in our lifestyle that will protect our planet and help flourish.

Need some ideas to do your bit in putting an end to plastic pollution?

Here’s a list of simple individual actions you can take to prevent plastic pollution in your area:

  1. Say NO to single use plastic items whenever possible e.g. plastic takeaway containers, plastic carry bags, plastic bottles, plastic straws, plastic lids etc. Instead, use biodegradable utensils such as wooden forks, reusable water bottle, cloth bags etc.
  2. Collect facts about this burning problem from all possible sources. Join seminars, movements against plastic use, tell your shopkeeper not to give commodities in plastic wrap and do everything within your means to put a check to proliferation of plastic in your daily life.
  3. Avoid consuming package food and drink as they are mostly wrapped in plastic bottles or containers and preserved by using chemicals that are often toxic for your health. Instead, cook “real food” and eat them fresh whenever possible.
  4. Ask your waiter to serve your coffee in a ceramic mug instead of the plastic use-and-throw containers. Many shops have ceramic coffee mugs but they use them only on request.
  5. DO NOT use personal care products made of plastic micro beads. Products like toothpaste and body wash contain tiny plastic particles that land up accumulating in our waterways.
  6. Avoid wearing clothes made of synthetic fibre as they contain fine plastic particles. They contaminate in the water of ponds, lakes, rivers and other waterways when you wash them.
  7. Talk to your friends, relatives and neighbours about plastic pollution and its detrimental effect on our environment. You can also join clean up campaigns near your location to raise mass awareness.
  8. Build up a strong bond with nature by using more organic products e.g. wooden toys, glass jars, paper bags, jute bags and clothes made from natural fibres.

Only together can we achieve our goal of making a plastic free world!

World Environment Day 2019

On 5th June 1974 the United Nations started observing World Environment Day to raise global awareness about our role in protecting nature and doing something to prevent the destruction of our natural resources. World Environment Day is a platform that outreaches people of all the countries of the world to convey their agenda each yearrelated to our environment and Mother Nature. The motto of the day is precisely to do “something” to keep our environment healthy and sustainable. Although most of the endeavours are taken at local, regional and national levels, you can always choose to do your own bit to keep your environment clean and pollution free.

Every year the United Nations chooses a theme that highlights a pressing environmental problem of the world. This year’s World Environment Day theme was “air pollution”. The official observation of the theme is hosted by a country each year. In the gala ceremony, the host country highlights itsenvironmental hazards and supports the aid and measures adopted by different countries to address the problem. This year’s host country was China.

The Government of China has committed to observe the World Environment Day  across different cities of the country with the main event being hosted at Hangzhou in the Zhejiang province. In the annual ceremony a report was published containing the details of air pollution control in China in the last 20 years. With its booming green energy sector, China has emerged in the global map as a climate leader. The country boasts fairly of owning the entrepreneurship to 99% of the world’s electric buses and 50% of the world’s electric vehicles. The government aims at showcasing its awareness in combating air pollution in China. The whole event was chaired by Li Ganjie Minister of Ecology and Environment and attended by more than 1,100 participants.

Important facts about air pollution

  • More than 92 percent of the global population do not breathe clean air.
  • Air pollution costs the global economy about 5 trillion dollars every year on welfare issues.
  • Staple crop yields is expected to be reduced by 26 percent due to ground level ozone pollution by 2030.

The UN Environment is a leading global voice which deals with issues related to our environment. It works with the governmental, non-governmental, private and other UN bodies to build strong leadership and partnership in inspiring and empowering the global population to protect nature and ensure quality living for future generations.

Paper or Plastic Bags?

Now that we are aware of the ill effects of plastic bags, every time we step into our grocery store, we have to choose our bags carefully. Plastic banning have become a global concern and countries like India, Bangladesh and Ireland have formulated stringent guidelines against plastic for commercial or domestic purposes. Since plastic bags have taken a backseat and people have considered them as the biggest hazard to environmental pollution, paper bags have come up to the forefront as it conjures up an organic image and can be recycled after every use whereas plastic bags are artificially made and can be harmful to plant and animal kingdom.

But do you know paper bags, too have their own share of negative points and can be a threat to nature and its evolution in the long run? While making a comparative study between the two products we have to count on all the impacts both have on the environment. Not just the time taken for plastic and paper bags to be decomposed, but the entire life cycle of the bag, raw materials used, energy used up, transportation cost and the amount of natural resources consumed need to be factored into the whole equation.

Here’s a comparative analysis between plastic and paper bags that will give you a clear idea about your best possible pick:

  1. Plastic bags are lightweight and are blown off easily by wind. As a result they are stuck to the branches of trees or flown in the waterways or mixed into the soil creating problem for livestock and marine animals in particular. On the other hand paper bags are easily recycled and missed with soil. But, paper is made from trees that serve as renewable resource of nature when grown sustainably. In that way plastic bags are not made at the cost of deforestation of vegetation.
  2. Plastic bags give out toxic gases when they are burnt and act as causative factor to a number of life threatening diseases. It is also a chief reason for environmental pollution. Likewise, paper bags too have negative effects on our environment. Production of paper bags leads to greenhouse gas effect which also causes a number of serious ailments.
  3. According to a report published by the Kansas Green Guide, in the year 1999 about 14 million trees were cut down for manufacturing 10 billion paper bags. There will be less number of trees to absorb the harmful greenhouse gas produced during paper bag manufacturing.  On the other hand, for making plastic bags, oil, electricity and coal serve as the chief sources of energy and the process has certainly harmful effects on our Nature.
  4. On the commercial ground, plastic bags are economic and customer friendly but they cannot be decomposed or recycled easily. Paper bags that are decomposed easily have higher percentage of recycled component and therefore highly expensive for retailers to provide them to their customers. Also, many paper bags are reinforced with harmful chemicals such as waxes, chemicals and even plastics to be sold at affordable prices at large scale.
  5. Due to high price of  paper bags people have to opt for low cost plastic bags. While plastic causes direct harm to our environment for its base component, paper bags also have negative impact on nature due to the harmful raw materials used in its manufacturing.

So putting these data on both sides of the scale you must be certain that cotton bags can be your best pick. Amanasiacotton bags will be your ultimate style statementthat sends powerful message to save our planet.


Plastic has brought in major changes in our lifestyle, accept it or not. Whether for shopping knickknacks or buying our monthly groceries or stacking unused toys of your kid as it grows up-plastic bag is the quickest and only solution for all your concerns. While going to office every day or a weekend trip with your nomadic chums, the one thing which you never forget to carry is a plastic water bottle. With many of its apparently valuable and indispensible uses, human beings have become addicted to plastic use, be it the single-use or disposable ones.

With widespread use of plastic, little do we care about the severe environmental pollution it causes due to plastic waste. Plastic use first made its appearance in the 50s and till the 70s the amount of waste produced was manageable. But, in the next two decades the waste generated due to havoc use of plastic literally tripled and in the early years of the present century, production of plastic waste surpassed that in the last four decades. From the given statistics, it is clear how plastic use have become one of the biggest causes of environmental pollution and as a result causing detrimental effect on natural and natural habitat.

How does plastic cause environmental pollution?

An estimated amount of 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic have been produced since 1950. About 60% of those plastic have been used either in landfill or for other purpose.  However, there are some more worrying trends of plastic use.

Plastic is produced faster than any other material since 1950 and in the last decade there has been a shift from durable plastic production to single-use plastic goods.  Almost all plastic goods are made of chemicals and petrochemical ingredients viz. natural gas, oil and coal. Such substances are non-renewable and add to the filth accumulation of earth as the global population increases. Some of the single use plastic products that have become indispensible in our daily lives such as- PET water bottles, dispensing containers, shampoo bottles, ice-cream containers, carry bags, trays, microwave dishes, bottle caps, cutlery sets, cups, protective packaging and many other things.  When the natural environment and habitat of an area is affected by accumulation of plastic waste, the condition is termed as plastic pollution. Such wastes are known as plastic pollutants as they cause water, soil and air pollution. Plastic wastes whether found in groundwater or under the soil, remain unsoiled for centuries.

Commercial fishing adds to environmental pollution

This is one of the biggest causes of environmental pollution in present times. Fishing is a major source of livelihood and the fishing nets used are made of plastic. While fishing the nets are submerged in water. As a result they often leak toxins that are mixed with water. When the nets are lost or break, they add more pollution to river or sea water. 

The world wakes up

The good news is developing countries like India, Vietnam, China and others are waking up to the problem and adopting various policies to reduce use of plastic that include use of bio-degradable plastic and banning of certain plastic products outright.  On the World Environment Day, the UN calls for taking concrete measures to #BeatPlasticPollutionand you can start doing your bit from today!

Are plastic bags a threat to environmental issues?

Plastic bags have become a part and parcel of our lives starting from storing cooked items of close to a week to toting your knickknacks bought from a roadside stall to keep your hands free. Also, we often secure our DVDs or testimonials raptly within plastic folders. While preparing our itineraries for a long journey, we often stuff our victuals inside plastic lunch boxes or zip lock bags.

But, do you know these plastic bags have a darker side also and the numerous problems they thrust upon civilization loom larger with each passing day?

Plastic is essentially made of fossil fuel sources i.e. petroleum and natural gases and therefore has toxic effects on our environment. The harmful chemicals of plastic bleed into our landfills and water bodies and pollute them. Plastic is not decomposable and that it why it cannot be completely perished no matter how much we vouch for using degradable plastic components

With a little awareness you will be able to combat the growing plastic problem and make an impact on your environment which it at the butts of danger.

Impact on animals
Midway Atoll in the North Pacific Ocean is home to the biggest albatross community on Planet Earth. These birds fly to the islands in search of food for their offspring. Unfortunately the mortality rate of the Albatross have increased by leaps and bounds because of ingesting large amount of plastic that are mixed in the soil of the region. An estimated rate of plastic accumulation is close to 4 tonnes per day. Floating plastic shards are often mistaken as jellyfish by the other marine animals that live on this fish and succumb to death. Also, animals often swallow plastics floating on water bodies and therefore cannot digest the real food they intake. As a result, the animals die a gradual death sue to starvation.

Litter problem
Plastic bags and other components are becoming stubborn debris of our environment. Every year the government of Australia spends 200$ for picking up the debris that are built up due to accumulation of plastic. As a result, unbarred use of plastic use will lead to amassing of such detrimental debris in our environment.

Greenhouse gas
Using at least ten light weight plastic bags every week leads to more than three times Greenhouse Gas effect than using of a reusable “green bag”. According to a research by University of Hawaii, plastic may release gases that heat up the climate as soon as they are exposed to light. Also poisonous gases like ethane and methane are also released due to such exposure of plastic to light

Problematic recycling of plastic bags
No matter how much you are conscious about using recyclable plastic bags, in reality these bags cannot be fully decomposed. Using three arrow ticks as a recyclable symbol is in most cases a marketing trick adopted by the plastic manufacturing companies. Plastic shopping bags attribute to blocking of drainage system particularly in the developing countries.

Besides all the above mentioned effects, plastics attribute health risk to human population by leaching toxins into water supplies. The list goes unending. It is high time that we are aware of the demerits of random use of plastic in our everyday life and choose objects that are organic and biodegradable.
