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
  • START USING RE-USABLE BAGS FOR EVERYDAY NEEDS

Your family will save a minimum of 1476 polybags / year . A neighborhood of 100,000 flats can save a whopping 14.76 crore polybags from choking the landfills.

As Clean Planet we have been running a civic campaign ‘India Kuch Kar’ for more than 2 years now. India Kuch Kar is the first DIY campaign of its kind where we provide the tools and citizens all over the country can actively participate in spreading the message for a clean India. India Kuch Kar is a series of posters made available as downloadable pdfs that we share with passionate individuals to post them in offices, public spaces, residential building notice boards or on social media. All of this is with the goal of inspiring our fellow citizens to contribute towards a Clean Country. Our campaign has been embraced by people from different parts of India – from Ladakh to Chennai.

The ‘India Kuch Kar’ campaign in Mumbai is being done in English and Marathi. The response from individuals across India has been very encouraging. People have been sharing the campaign on their facebook walls, on email, sharing the posters on their office / residential building notice boards. Several Ganesh Mandals in Mumbai co-operated to share the posters at their venues during Ganesh Chaturthi.

Feel free to download the ‘India Kuch Kar’ campaign posters for use in your part of India.
