Is plastic that dangerous ?

No matter how ignorant one may be, it's an undeniable fact that they cannot disregard the significance of plastics in their life. Our demand for convenience and general lack of concern for our world’s plight are disturbing and destructive. We felt that it is obvious and high time that we need to do something to create awareness among the kids on usage of plastic bags, which is virtually wiping out our descendants chances at a healthy, safe Earth. The session edified them on various aspects such as the first man-made plastic, steps involved in its manufacturing, types of plastic etc. The presentation also gave them a clear picture of Resin Identification Codes, which helps to identify recyclable plastics. The session concluded by suggesting few alternate solutions such as BYOB – Bring Your Own Bag! It may be, seemingly small effort but you will be helping to save the environment from greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, and the waste of our valuable resources. "The ultimate test of man's conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for the future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard."
