The amount of pollution caused to the environment by single use plastic items is untold but visible to citizens. Every year, countless examples of single-use plastic are reported to the authorities, where no action is taken.
What is Single Use?
Single-use plastics are defined as non-reusable goods that are used for a limited period. Usage of these items are not prohibitive thus, results in litter and pollution.
The government of India announced a national ban on single-use plastic items effective from July 1, 2022. The first category of plastics that has been banned is sticks used in balloons, candy, etc. Whereas, the second category would be banning plates, cups, glasses and cutlery. Including invitation cards, cigarette packets, stirrers, and banners with a thickness of less than 100 microns.
How to Comply with the Ban?
According to the law, any café or restaurant found to violate the stated law may be subject to a massive fine. Thereby, the utilization of sustainable products would help the community to raise more awareness against plastic effects. In an attempt to develop the world, Ecoware produces biodegradable and 100% plant-based products. For example disposable plates, cutlery, bowls etc to eliminate the environmental damage. So why wait? let’s begin investing in a brighter today, for a better tomorrow!
