Subject: Ban on the use of plastic bags
I am very pleased to read the news that recently Rajasthan State Government has banned plastic bag manufacturing, storing & distributing Companies. Along with it, whoever is indulging in the production and use of polythene bags, will be penalized for 30,000/- and 6 months of imprisonment. It will be very helpful in keeping the environment clean. The biggest problem with the plastic bags which are used for the packing of milk, oil, salt, etc. is that they are dirtying the environment, and the second, plastic is not biodegradable. When thrown, it chokes the drainages; when burnt, it emits poisonous gases. Thus, the ban on plastic will be helpful in protecting our environment in many ways. I think that it should be banned throughout the country by the Indian Government.
