ENVIRONMENTAL PAPER PRODUCTS
Explain your idea in details:
Our main aim is to create a non plastic environment, so we planned to introduce paper bags instead of plastic bags. Though government has planned to band all the plastic so this idea will be more helpful to overcome this problem. We have planned to make paper bags using newspapers which will be a good thing to control this pollution. Newspaper bags have 50 GSM which we are going to used in 2 layers so this bag can withstand a weight up to 2 Kg. And then we a quality paper which has 100 GSM which can withstand a weight of about 5 kgs. Thus these can be used to carry groceries and vegetables. So this may completed abolish the use of plastics.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Our main motto is to provide a plastic free environment all over the country. Already many problems are being created due to this use of plastics. Thus by the end of 2019 there should be no more plastics even in containers and in any other products that we use in our daily life. Thus mainly our aim is to abolish plastic bags which is widely used.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
We just have planned to implement in our area and spread my company throughout the country within the end of 2019. This step to protect my country will succeed if everyone tends to use paper products instead of using plastic products. We have planned to organize a awareness program based on the causes and harmfulness plastics and to spread good things about abolishing plastics. So through this peoples will come to know about the danger issues of plastic and before the end of 2019 everyone will use paper products instead of plastics.
