Ban plastic bags (covers)
by Nandikanti Sai Kumar, India

The rampant use of plastic bags (covers) is fast becoming a grave cause of concern considering the enviromental pollution that it causes. Plastic is a non-biodegradable material and it takes nearly 400 to 1000 years to decompose completely. This causes serious harm not only to human beings, but also to plants, animals, the marine eco system etc. Plastic releases toxic gases when burnt. It is because of these reasons all state governmnets must ban the use of plastic bags (covers) completely.
