One of the possible alternatives is lying on those days when our grandparents used to market for buying vegetables, fruits etc. They used a kind of bag made of clothes, which still used by some writers, poets. They used to hang it on their shoulders. In hindi, it is said "JHOLA BAGS". Govt can advise households to get a JHOLA BAG for the marketing of vegetables, fruits etc and instruct the sellers not to use polythenes for providing the goods.

We throw the our used polythene bags near & there and these ultimately come to the drains & other water bodies. This pollutes the water bodies and block the drains of free water flowing which is the cause of artificial flood in city like Guwahati. Though it is not possible to ban the Plastic Industry and completely avoiding the use of its bags, but if we can gradually minimizing their use in our daily life and can use alternative carrying like papers, jute bags etc.

The thing to work on is to use the mindset of the people. We need to urge a feeling among them not to use plastic bags. The government can issue orders to the shopkeepers to use paper bags. even we the general public needs to carry their own disposable bags.

A few steps may reduce pollution created by plastic items 1) Use of paper bag instead of polythene bags 2) Create awareness amongst common people to avoid plastic bags etc. 3) Since it will be difficult to ban the plastic producing industries, so awareness programme will help in minimizing of use of plastics bags etc.
