Bartan Bank Revolution: An Innovative Step Towards a Green India
India is currently grappling with a significant environmental challenge: the country produces an alarming 62 million tonnes of plastic in the form of disposable plastic crockery. A staggering 92% of this plastic ends up littering our streets and waterways, as it’s discarded without being recycled. This is due to the slow decomposition rate of plastic and a culture that has become reliant on disposable items for convenience.
Disposable plastic crockery has become a go-to for many due to its affordability, especially during large events, marriages and gatherings, a common part of Indian culture. The convenience of disposable utensils also appeals to many, as they require minimal effort to transport and dispose of.
