    Hi all,

    we all know that plastic takes 1000yrs for degrading. so, how many of us r really concerned to this. I saw some poeple who will ask the shop keeper to give items in a polythine cover feeling that we will get an extra cover. n some feel we can use those covers to through off as dust filled covers.
    as per concerning global warming, why cann't us as an educated people start some small works in life without plastic.

    I follow some small practices in my life to avoid plastic usage like carrying my own cloth bags for shopping, using steal boxes for carrying food, r for keeping kitchen items. n carrying my own casserols/steal boxes whenever I need to carry a parcel from hotel .

    I request all ILs to avoid plastic to any extent what they can do, so that we will caring our lives n lill bit of world.

    thanks for reading this post. n be a proud human by avoind plastic.:thumbsup

    thanks

    A good thing indeed to avoid plastics. Everyone must understand and also follow ways to minimize the use of plastic as far as possible, at least to save the environment for future generations.

    I always say a big NO to plastic / polythene usage
    My family members mostly use eco-friendly materials.

    Hi dear ILs,

    today I made a cloth bag with an old t-shirt.
    i followed simple steps to do this.

    here r the steps

    cut off the neck line
    cut off the sleeves
    join the bottom with a stich
    use the 2 collar peices as handles

    it looks very trendy.

    it doesn't look odd, even we can keep this type of bag always with us in our vanity bag.
    as my cam is not charged, I can post the pic tomorrow.
