Is there a Green Gap?
Plastics have several misconceptions, but the fact remains that it has the least carbon footprint compared to its packaging counterparts. It enables producers and manufacturers to ship more products with less packaging materials. Light-weighting plays a crucial role in uplifting the economic as well as environmental efficiency of product packaging.
The disposal of plastic waste is a pressing concern due to the lack of proper collection and segregation of plastic waste. According to a joint report by Assocham and PwC, India will need a landfill that’s the size of New Delhi by 2050. The most crucial step to change this alarming forecast is to segregate waste in every possible way to be treated.
One simple action plan for India
There is a dire need to spread awareness and encourage waste segregation. There should be a uniform policy with the main emphasis on segregation and waste management from the government’s end. Organisations need to have an infrastructure for the proper segregation and management of plastic wastes. Along with this, the government and industries need to join hands to manage waste, such as workers getting incentives to sort out waste.
