In order to reduce the overuse of plastics, the following steps can be taken:

  • Insist that shopkeepers use paper bags or jute bags to carry goods purchased,
  • Do not use plastic bags, especially to store eatables.
  • Don’t fill plastic bags with the wastes of plants and animals, such as peels of vegetables and fruits, egg shells, and bone pieces of animals, and throw them here and there in open places. Animals may eat such plastic bags for the sake of food items. Later on, these cause the deaths of animals such as cows, buffaloes, dogs, and other stray animals. These plastic bags, sometimes suffocate them or choke the alimentary canal which causes indigestion of food and elimination of undigested food.
