Who have created eco-friendly alternatives for plastic

Plastic pollution has been increasing at an alarming rate and now aggravated to such high that it has come to threaten the existence of many species. The menace is more severe in urban belts. Meanwhile, Guwahati Municipal Corporation has undertaken several steps to curb the rampant use of plastic.

Facing such an extreme situation many innovative minds are working towards creating eco-friendly alternatives of plastic. If an individual, group or organisation is working for such a purpose, using cloth, paper, water hyacinth, jute or any other eco-friendly alternatives, they may share their experiences with MyGov Assam. Write about the initiative in details and send it to MyGov Assam.

Steps shall be taken to get innovators in touch with Guwahati Municipal Corporation through MyGov Assam.

There are several steps that can be taken to minimise the use of plastic.
1. Public awareness (which clearly is ineffective)
2. Carpet ban on the use of plastic bags.
3. Charge the use of plastic bags. An initiative taken in London UK. Anyone who uses plastic bag is charged.
4. Make cheap jute bags available for shopping.

Biodegradable plastics.
Set up an industry that runs on completely on solar energy and make biodegradable plastics which is much strong than three plastics we use.

PLASTIC COMPOSITION OF CHEMICHAL IT INVENTION IS FOR GOOD PURPOSE. BUT IT IS NOW TAKE A BIG ROLE FOR PLASTOPOLLUTION. THE USABLE PLASTICS ARE IN HOME IS GOOD BUT IN SUMMER SEASON THE HEAT AFFECT IT. EVEN IN HOME. WHEN THE TEMP. ARROUD UP TO 40 DIGREE. IT IS BETTER TREE PLANTATION OR SMALL PLANT PLANTATION. WITH THIS COOL THE HOME WITH TRADITIONAL WAY OF HOME LIKE WET CLOTH. ANOTHER THING IS RECYCLE OF PLASTICS LIKELY USE IN ART & CULTURE, CRAFT, HAND MADE TOYS FOR KIDS & MANY MORE BUT RECYCLED.
