We people were addicted to plastic. It take time to get out from plastic world. This awareness is necessary to put in child from begaining. It means from nursery school. We adult also say "no plastic" to shopkeeper whenever we purchase goods from market. Always kept cloth bag/jute bag with us, so that we avoid plastic bag.
