NGO Buddh Jyoti Foundation is beating plastic pollution with cloth bags
#BeatPlasticPollution – Going with the theme of this year’s World Environment Day, #BeatPlasticPollution, Buddh Jyoti Foundation (BJF), a Delhi based NGO, is running a one month campaign to distribute cloth bags in major markets in Delhi NCR.
“More than 400 million tonnes of plastic is produced every year, half of which is designed to be used only once. If we could stop the use of single use plastic, half of the battle is won. Keeping this in mind, BJF is starting a one month campaign to generate awareness among the consumers about the hazards of single use plastics”, Says Kapeel Barsaiyan, President, BJF
“The awareness drive will include visits to the main markets of Delhi NCR and initiating a dialogue with the consumers and presenting them with a Cloth Bag to replace their single use plastic. Awareness is the key to reduce the meance of single use plastic. Plastic clogs our landfills, leaches into the ocean and is combusted into toxic smoke, making it one of the gravest threats to the planet”, adds Kshipra Simon, Secretary General, BJF.
These Cloth bags have been made by the marginalised section of the society. We are glad that this drive has also become a source of income for these women.
