The rapid rate with which our environment is stagnating creates an alarming situation, regarding the planet and its habitat. A substantial need is felt in order to preserve nature and halt the global warming condition. Thus, bestowing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Swachhata Hi Seva' campaign, Khadi India in an unconventional way introduced a unique designer carry bag made from a compound of plastic waste and paper pulp.
The Khadi and Village Industries Commission unveiled the green collar plastic-paper mixed handmade carry bags at it's chief Khadi India store in Delhi. Along with the prime minister pioneering the cleanliness campaign, these carry bags were launched by Khadi India at all of its stores across the country.
Experiments were conductued at Kumarappa National Handmade Paper Institute unit at Jaipur to unfold the unique bag. The experiments were done on utilisation of various types of plastic waste including high-density and low-density polyethylene, and gladly went successful.
This further explained REPLAN (Reducing Plastic in Nature), a project in which the waste plastic from nature is collected, de-structured and de-gradated and then mixed with paper pulp in a ratio of 80:20. The project intends to remove the existing waste plastic material from nature and use it in a semi-permanent manner, so that availability of plastic in nature is reduced to a large extent.
These steps taken by the government are praiseworthy and are expected to dispense notable aid from the existing issue of plastic waste, and its disposal.
