How India can ban plastic bags

There are limits to what even the Supreme Court of India can do to discipline Indians into more socially acceptable behaviour.

Even a month after the apex court’s decree to this effect, both plastic bags and a variety of products in non biodegradable plastic sachets are still available around the country.

Non biodegradable plastic poses a threat, both to the environment, and to civic infrastructure management.

In the absence of adequate scientific recycling or disposal facilities, the bulk of plastic bags end up either in landfills, where they tend to last practically forever, or on city roads, where they pose a traffic hazard, and in drains, where they end up clogging sewage systems.

Mumbai’s unpreced nike ented flooding, in July 2005, following a monsoon deluge was caused more by the blocking of drains by plastic bags than the rainfall itself.

Flooding of roads, especially during the monsoon season, is quite common in other urban centres as well, the national capital being no exception.

Civic bodies spend huge amounts annually to combat this menace.

Yet, regrettably, result oriented action is not forthcoming to enforce ban on plastic bags.

The main argument of plastic bag manufacturers and of the traders, who use them, is that there is no equally inexpensive and convenient alternative.

This is factually correct.

But the argument is based on private costing rather than the social cost of plastic bags. This draws attention to the contradiction between private benefit and social cost.

The social and environmental costs of using plastics bags far outweighs the very obvious private nike benefit.

The incentive to look for ecologically acceptable alternatives would go up if the manufacture of plastic bags is effectively prohibited and the ban on their use effectively policed.

There was life before plastic bags came into mass use.

Most shoppers, especially those buying vegetables and other consumables of daily use carried their own cloth, jute and paper bags and cane baskets from home to bring groceries.

Reusable bags made from other kinds of non plastic environment friendly fabrics can also replace these bags.

If necessary, to facilitate transition, the use of alternatives to p nike lastic bags can also be subsidised or incentivised in a variety of ways.

Such subsidies can be financed through carbon credits that would be earned from a ban on burning of plastics, quit nike e common in India, that emits environmentally dangerous gases into the atmosphere.

India can learn from the experience of countries that have managed to sharply reduce the use of plastic bags.

Ireland levied a tax on the use of plastic bags in 2002.

This led to an over 90 per cent reduction in the use of plastic shopping bags.

China imposed a ban in 2008 on free plastic bags, making their sale compulsory.

This is estimated to have curbed demand by two thirds.

Several other countries such as Australia, Bangladesh, South Africa, Thailand and some states in the US, have taken similar measures with varying degrees of success.

I use whatever cheapest and has a design I like, usually from a thrift store. If it nike doesn have enough pockets, I just group like items together in sandwich bags and store them that way. Diaper bags don last long around here, things get spilled, food gets forgotten, wet bags get accidentally left in overnight and start to smell, so I consider them pretty disposable.

This is my first nike baby, but I got a big tote bag from Vera Bradley. (Not sure if you like that brand.) I think it was called the Get Carried Away Tote. Basically, it huge. I think it the biggest bag they have that isn luggage, lol. (18in wide, 17in tall, 7in wide) A lot of people left reviews on that bag saying it was perfect for a diaper bag; the seemingly unlimited space, awesome pockets insi nike de and out, two plastic lined pockets. It awesome.

A common complaint I heard is that after a couple months, a regular diaper bag is too small. But, it your call. I choose to get a tote bag that was durable, stylish, and something I be able to use after the baby isn a baby anymore.

As far as size, I sure you be able to get around with something a little smaller. I just a Mary Poppins type lady. I really recommend Vera Bradley, though. Her bags always have awesome storage, are very durable, and can be washed easily. If you aren interested in the patterns, there are plain black ones, and they have released some color block bags with little to no pattern. Plus, there is a wide variety of totes for you to choose from as far as size goes.

Another general rule, find something with a hard base so you can set it down with falling over. Just something a friend suggested.

I nannied for a two year old in diapers and got away with using a target “work tote” that came with a laptop sleeve. I added a wet bag nike and various cosmetic travel cases. In the laptop sleeve put a kushies changing pad (they are thinner than diaper changing mats and go in the washing machine and dryer), wipes, diapers (It could hold 6 or more), travel size butt paste and hand sanitizer. I would put spare clothes in one cosmetic case, packaged snacks in another, and my own things in another. They all felt different, so I could reach in my bag blindly and pull out what I needed without having to dig. I liked having the food items in a place where they wouldn touch any diapering items (the parents bag had everything thrown in together and it grossed me out.) It a system I plan to return to, and it didn look like a diaper bag, and I still use that tote now that I not working with kids in diapers. On all the items I had I think I only spent $30. Another very simple option is getting the SkipHop Pronto and throwing it in your purse or Daddy backpack.
