AREA OF OPERATION 13th MAY 2013
The average person uses 500 single-use disposable plastic bags a year, an average of 1.37 bags per day. This translates to 73,980 plastic bags being used in each of our 50 wards, every day, or 3.7 million plastic bags being used city-wide, every day. The environmental impact of these bags is plain to see. Take a look at the on/off ramps of any expressway in our city and you will see hundreds of bags littering our landscape and caught in the trees of all our neighborhoods. Between 3 and 5 percent of all plastic bags become litter. These bags get stuck in our drains causing flooding and costing us tax dollars. They clog our landfills and jam our recycling machinery.
According to a recent research just 1.5 percent of bags are recycled. On 13 May 2013 through TANISHKA VYASAPITHA & coordination with environmental advocacy groups and business associations Yashoda Mahila Mandal hopes to find a solution to plastic bag waste that will benefit the environment, businesses and shoppers.
