Did you know that one of the sources of future Air Pollution is the plastic in your refrigerator?
One of the biggest reasons most folks invite tons of plastic into their homes is to store fruits and vegetables in the refrigerator. Disposed after one use, these bags leave the kitchen bin and head right to an ever growing pile of non-biodegradable waste.
This adds to the trash Mountains at landfills already overflowing beyond their capacity.
Deonar dumping ground in Mumbai is spread across 326 acres, with Trash Mountains as a high 30 metres, the equivalent of a nine-story building.
The recent fire at Deonar landfills was a cause for great concern in terms of health and waste disposal process. The burning plastic non-biodegradable waste in this trash only pushed the city’s air to dangerously toxic levels for days after the fire occurred. For temporary convenience of polybags we compromise our health and that of our families & the overall environment.
Our actions here can be of a preventive nature towards future hazards:
- AVOID THE USAGE OF PLASTIC / POLYTHENE BAGS
