Since the plastic was discovered we are using it everywhere in our day to day life. But it is sebere pollutant because when thrown away, plastics can take hundreds of years to decompose.
So, Here are few alternatives which can be used instead of plastics-
Bagasse : Compostable, eco-friendly bagasse is great for replacing plastic when you need disposable plates, cups, or take-out boxes. Bagasse is the pulp left over when juice is extracted from sugarcane. As it’s made from plants it will biodegrade easily.
Paper bags and bags made from cloths : Paper bags can be used in place of plastics as they are good to carry lighter objects and they can degrade very easily. Cloth bags are very strong and a very good alternative of plastic,you can use it to carry heavier objects.bags made from cloths can be recycled easily.
Glass : Glass, along with metals like aluminum and steel, can be recycled indefinitely, meaning they don’t have to end up in landfills. We can use it to store Milk, Groceries, Food etc.
