Explain your idea in details:
This idea aims at starting up a manufacturing paper carry bags in Dodoma Region, Tanzania. Thereby protecting local environment from massive destruction due to the excessive use of polythene carrying bags. Also the manufacturing industry will offer continuous employment to individuals from socially and economically disadvantaged groups. Paper carry bags are common packaging materials used by textiles and cloth merchants, dry cleaners, bakers, grocers, stationers, and sweet seller. Paper carry bag can hold up to 20 kg of weight without getting torn. The government of Tanzania and Big business today are increasingly becoming environment sensitive and wants to be seen as Eco-friendly. Establishment of shopping complexes and consumer stores in the rural, semi-urban and urban areas, the demand for paper bags has increased due to elimination policy of polythene carry bags, paper carry bags demand is growing very fast. There is huge market for paper bags, shopping bags, paper gift bags, brown craft paper and customized gift to shopping malls, franchises of companies and company showrooms among other.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The paper carry bags can thereafter supplement the use of polythene carrying bags. The increasing Company Organizations, visitors, tourists, and fast growing population does not only pose problems related to the allocation of resources and powers, but also severely challenges the natural environment with increasing use of packaging materials. Environmental degradation such as polluted air has become a harsh reality in many parts of Tanzania from improper burning of waste. Noteworthy, a damaged local environment hits the most vulnerable groups of society the hardest. Poor and marginalized people lack the resources needed to reduce the negative effects of a degraded environment. At the same time, they are usually directly dependent on their close natural environment for their daily survival. Given this reality, current developments while the quantity of polythene waste generated by society is increasing, the composition of solid waste is becoming more and more diversified. At the same time, many households do not recycle their waste, instead they tend to dispose it outside their homes or on the streets. Paper carrying bags are Eco-friendly, easily recycled and can be easily decomposed.
