MALLS/RETAILERS TO START RECYCLED PAPER BAGS FREE OF COST SUPPORTING PLASTIC/POLYTHENE BAN

Honourable Govt Of India,
You have passed a judgement on 2011 ,to stop giving the plastic bags to the customer free of cost this is done to curb plastic pollution , but Study shows a mall of any city sells around 15kg to 20kg carry bags per day. If there are 65 plastic bags in one kilogram, retailers are making a profit of around Rs 40, 000 - 1 lakh just by handing over the carry bags to their customers.

The ban has only put additional burden on the consumers and provided a new source of revenue for the malls," its actually lack of proper planning and implementation of the ban has defeated the purpose

Ideally it should happen that they start giving recycled Paper bags ,Jute Bags ,instead of the plastic bag this will reduce the plastic pollution and helps our small scale industry also ,

My request is to pass your judgement to encourage use the Paper Bags by retailer by encouraging them discount on the total purchase to the customer if they take a paper bag or jute bag instead of Polythene bags, this will stop the Unethical revenue earned by them on plastic bags and also stopping the Plastic bag pollution in a positive note

Why is this important?

Dear Friends ,
Now a days at every corner and every half a kilometer we see in some corner there is a heap of plastic bags/Polythene bags dumps .Most of them are from the Big retailers of the Malls.
Study shows a mall of any city sells around 15kg to 20kg carry bags per day. If there are 65 plastic bags in one kilogram, retailers are making a profit of around Rs 40, 000 - 1 lakh just by handing over the carry bags to their customers.

The ban has only put additional burden on the consumers and provided a new source of revenue for the malls," its actually lack of proper planning and implementation of the ban has defeated the purpose

Ideally it should happen that they start giving recycled Paper bags ,Jute Bags ,instead of the plastic bag this will reduce the plastic pollution and helps our small scale industry also ,

The Petition will force the Retailers to use the Paper Bags, stopping the Unethical revenue earned by them on plastic bags and also stopping the Plastic bag pollution .
