Beat plastic pollution

In Pakistan, waste plastic bags can be seen thrown everywhere – roadside as well as floating on water. It is not just the problem of Pakistan but this issue prevails around the world. These plastic bags are badly affecting human life, animal life, marine life and environment. It is astonishing to know that one plastic bag takes 500+ years to dispose. It is heartening to know that many countries took an initiative to mitigate plastic pollution by banning plastic bags or putting heavy taxes on them. Due to easy access to plastic bags people buy things of daily use in these bags and then throw them anywhere whimsically. Being a Pakistani, let us make a pledge, on the occasion of Independence Day, to make Pakistan plastic-free country and for that we all should boycott use of plastic bags and use handicraft bags which are re-usable.
