1. PLASTIC POLLUTION IN INDIA

The first plastic shopping bag was produced and patented by Cello A Swedish company in 1965. This year is also termed as the dawn of the era of plastic bags. Within the next 20 years the usage rates of plastic bags when through the roofs and soon after a barrage of plastic products like spoons, forks, plates and bowls burst on to the scene and since then have dominated the consumer-based market.

Plastic was a revolutionary product. It was strong yet light. It did not chemically react with almost anything hence making it a perfect medium to carry almost anything and it was super cheap to produce at a mass scale which resulted in huge profit margins.

Who would have thought that this object of human salvation would ultimately turn into an instrument of our damnation!!!

Plastic products are the biggest culprits of environmental degradation and indirectly contribute to the phenomena of GLOBAL WARMING!!!

1.1 HOW PLASTIC AFFECTS THE ENVIRONMENT

5.6 million tonnes per annum of plastic waste is produced in India. According to Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan a single plastic bottle takes between 450-1000 years to decompose. That’s a long period of time.

Some of the other ways through which plastic harms the environment around us are as follows

a. Marine Life

Due to dumping of plastic waste on of water bodies the following effects have been observed

Some of the waste stays on the surface hence blocking the entering passage of sunlight and oxygen which is essential for the marine life.

This plastic waste is consumed by the marine life which in turn leads to internal poisoning and bleeding and ultimately death.

Sometimes the marine life gets entangled with objects like plastic cutlery which leads to suffocation and death.

b. High Carbon footprint

During production of plastic goods there is a gigantic emission of carbon and heat. This carbon converts to carbon-di-oxide upon reaching the atmosphere and combines with greenhouses gases like methane which results in increase of global temperature and subsequent catastrophic climatic changes.

c. Degradation of Human Health

In the end all of the above-mentioned factors directly affect the health of humans. We eat the fish that has consumed plastic waste and in turn our chances of having kidney stones, stomach cancer and liver cancer increases.

Air pollution, sea pollution and land pollution and global warming has increased due to increase in plastic goods production and usage rate.

The need of the hour is to reduce plastic usage or that time isn’t far where the survival of the world and the human race is in a dire situation.

2.3 HOW OUR PRODUCTS WILL REDUCE PLASTIC POLLUTION

Our products will lead to reduction in plastic pollution through the following ways

BIO-DEGRADABLE If you don’t want to eat the spoon or fork you can just throw them away without any worries of it causing harm to the environment as our products are bio-degradable and take only 2 days to completely mix with soil. Hence, no longer there will be a scenario where there is a danger to the marine life and possibility of soil-degradation and also the governments won’t have to face the problem of plastic waste disposal.

HARMLESS PRODUCTION PROCEDURE Unlike plastic bags there is no emission of carbon di oxide and huge amounts of heat during the production therefore there will be a reduction in the total presence of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere and hence the abnormal climatic changes will reduce and there may be a probability of reduction in global warming.
