Polythene bags should be banned. There are many impacts of using plastic bags. It takes many decades to degrade. We cannot ban it completely as many people are working in plastic industries and it is cheaper than others, but we can reduce the consumption of plastics. It is necessary for our daily life but we can reduce it.

Polyethene should be stopped because it is harmful to us, it spoils our environment. And neither does it rot nor dissolve. The pollution it causes is very dangerous for us. That is why we should not use polythene. And we should help to stop it.

Hi, myself Susmitha.

Today am going to express my opinion about the plastic ban.

We all know that plastic is polyethene which is nondegradable leads to soil erosion further floods n further havoc to people and causes major health effects and damages environment n damages animal and marine life and also sudden banning of plastic will affect many workers who depend on plastic manufacturing industries.

Instead of banning suddenly, first, we should promote about 3R among people, govt should feel initiative and make strong rules like China like offering tickets or any gifts to those who collect plastics. And also govt need to make the announcement to shopkeepers not to give covers only the customers have to bring covers in order to reduce plastic.

In marriages and hotels also govt should need to make strict rules this may be difficult but local leaders have to focus on these.

I said that first govt should promote 3R ie Reduce use of plastic by using alternatives like paper bags, jute bags, cloth bags and build industries for this and provide employment.

Reusable of plastic. Before people start complete avoiding of plastic at least should reuse plastic bags more than once.

Recycle. Many articles are available on how to recycle plastic-like making roads and others.

But don't recycle plastic for plant pots because plastic has severe chemicals which may genetically change the plant n soil so avoid planting plant saps in plastic utensils.

Following these are difficult but in order to get good n great plastic (not fully at least less than now) free society, we have to be hard at our decisions.

It's not only govt responsibility it's our duty too to make India pollution-free.

As we know plastic is hazardous and not nature friendly. We look for an alternate solution to evacuate plastic and employ jute and paper bags, but why don't we also think about reducing the number of plants and trees, used in making jute and paper bags. Instead, we can stick to 3R formula in reducing, reusing and recycling the plastic and get the best out of it. Nevertheless, it requires a good amount of humans support.

Hi, Our today gd topic about" polythene bags must be banned". According to my opinion, Yes, it should be banned Because lt is very harmful for our environment. First of all, it is not recycled. After that if polythene bags burned, it creates A very harmful gas which effects our environment very badly. Even many of the animals like cow, dogs etc ate them which effect their digest system too. Now a days, government also taken many steps by imposing penalties on the people who are still using them like Retailer etc, Also we should promote jute bags to carry items which is save and also promote jute industry in India and ultimately helps in growth of GDP.

Hello everyone, very good to all of you.

This is Ajay Kumar today my topic is polythene bag must be banned.

In my point of it should be banned but by and by rather than suddenly as we all know that plastic.

It is a non-biodegradable material. It can't decompose due to this it causes soil erosion. By burning this it produces harmful gases which cause air pollution which is not good for breathing. Many animals eat plastic due to the negligence of human beings cause death to the animals.

Like every coin has two faces, it also has two aspects by banning plastic it causes unemployment to the.

People who are working in those industries.

Before banning plastic we also have to find a substitute for plastic-like jute bags, paper bags, etc. By finding such opportunities we don't face a problem carrying things.

Thank you for reading my opinion.

While coming to polythene bag it comes to 2 aspects firstly environmental and secondly industrial. Coming to the environmental point of view plastic is nonbiodegradable and causes pollution but from an industrial point of view if polythene bag is banned it will affect the petrochemical industry the most and it will also affect the small industry which is dependent on plastic for there business. This without banning plastic bag we can follow 3R policies i.e. Reduce (we should try to reduce plastic and use alternative form like paper bag) next Reuse (we should not do single use of plastic but multiple-use as it to reduce amount of pollution) and the lastly Recycle (we should try to recycle plastic like we know that plastic, when mixed with road pitch, increases the road quality by 10 times.

Currently, I read in the newspaper that plastic is used for oil production. Thus we should look at various ways of recycling plastic not on banning plastic as it is not going to solve the problem of plastic.

Most of the plastic is mingle in solid, it can leads to stop growing of plants. In oceans, seas, other are polluted by the plastic material. We are eating the ocean food like fishes, frank etc. Then automatically we also eat the plastic indirectly. We use in the place of plastic we can use paper material things and also cloth material.

Yes, the government must ban polythene bags.

Polythene bags are non-bio degradable hence it leads to soil erosion.

Instead of polythene bags, we need to use cloth bags, conducting some roadshows and seminars on this and by bringing awareness among people.

We can reduce the use of polythene bags.

Among all countries china is in the first position to damage marine life by dumping wastes in the seas and oceans, the china government has taken the decision that. : "they announced that 5 small bottles=2big bottles=10 polythene bags=one bus ticket "by this method they are trying to reduce plastic waste.

In my opinion a ban on polythene bags is the need of the hour. For a country like India which ranks 180 among 180 countries in terms of Environmental Pollution Index (EPI), it becomes essential at this point to take such effective measures and ensure that people follow it seriously. Polythene is a non-disposable and non-biodegradable plastic, which not only harms the environment we live in, but various animals graze over food in polythene bags and might ingest whole or a part of that polythene. This may cause them to choke.

Hello everyone.

We are discussing the topic "polythene bags must be banned" which becomes a major problem for human being and animals as well.

In my opinion, this should be banned but the alternative of this should be encouraged.

There are so many reasons for the ban of polythene like most of the polythene waste are mixing in oceans and create problems for marine life. A lot of animals are eating polystyrene. When we eat these ocean fishes we are indirectly eating polythene.

These days everything including foods is wrapped in polythene and when these products are exposed to heat then dangerous chemical such as BPA released in food.

Like this, so many problems are generated by polythene.

There is a need for awareness to people and everyone should think about it.

It is a responsibility to every human being to clean our planet.

We can use biodegradable plastic, paper bags, cotton bags etc instead of polythene.

So my conclusions are polythene should be banned and replacement should be provided.

No not necessary.

Because as citizens of Indian, what is our responsibility to not use it. If these kinds of compromises did not do by our people how we aspects the development of any country. Everyone knows it. It s harmful for animals, earth, environment, people's so I think it is a very small thing so not need to ban it's our responsibility.

Poison also kill the humans but anyone not demanding for the ban. Acid is used on people but no one is not demanding to stop manufacturing this, why polythene.

So I think it's our responsibility to not use, not the government.

There are paper bags, and cotton bags available why we are not buying these things.

If everyone is trying to pollute the environment then I am asking why the government have to spend money to clean it why. And what is your responsibility? So no need to ban it people are cheep mentality they are going to do this again and again.

Polythene bags are made of non-renewable resources and are petroleum based. They consume a large amount of heat when fabricated. They come in lightweight and are manufactured in large amount. No one stops manufacturing unless we stop using them. They don't give up since that's how they make money.

It's up to us to use paper covers, jute eco-friendly bags. They don't damage easily and degradable. Polythene may or may not banned but can be replaced by educating everyone. We arent only destroying our atmosphere but also our fellow living beings like cows. Cows don't know the taste and eat covers along with food. We are the reason for all these environmental imbalances. It's just a matter of second to take a jute bag and go for buying. Govt must ban polythene since we can't do anything about shopping malls giving off plastic bags.

We know that polythene is not good for environments as well any living things on the planet. The only way to stop the polythene bags usage that is to stop the whole manufacturing factoring and else working place where polythene makes. Along with help those peoples who want to stop the usage of polythene bags.

All Government patty said to not using the polythene bags why they never stop the factoring making those polythene bags. If that not possible then give the free papers bags to the whole shops to use it instead of polythene bags providing by government If they want people to stop the polythene bags usage or else low taxes sale on the papers bags that might be people's will start to using these types of bags.

Too much harmful the facking polythene bags. I think if government Focus on that things instead of election the might be peoples shop the usages of these type of bags.

As per my opinion, that govt should take responsibility of polythene.

In my point of view, it's our responsibility to minimize the usage of plastic or polythene. If we decrease the usage of polythene automatically the plastics will be banned. For example, nowadays 10 rs coin is not using anywhere and no one is accepting it in groceries and shops why because we are not using that coin same as if we stop using polythene bags automatically the plastic will be banned. I know that suddenly stopping the usage of plastics is difficult but we can try to do.

Land pollution.
Skin related problem.
Death of animal and so on.

So, I think that is the duty of every citizen to minimize the use of polythene bags, also we should educate and spread awareness regarding the use of polythene bags.

Because if we are not able to reduce the use of polythenes then the healthy society was not easily built.

In my opinion, the problem can be completely stopped only if we remove from its roots. Laws and acts won't help until they come out from that papers. The government instead of passing laws or spending money to adverstise on banning plastic they should encourage establishing some companies to produce packages made of bio degradable polymers. PM took a brave decision like demonetization, he should think on this which is a more problem to our future generations!

If possible harmful plastic bags production should be stopped and by initially providing subsidies cloth/biopolymer bags industries should be opened. Saving our environment is saving our future generations. But even swatch Bharath banners are of plastic.

Indeed! We all support afforestation without any hesitation, even though we haven't planted a sapling. However, we at least by now have come to the consciousness of planting and growing trees. Simultaneously, we should also remember to protect them too.

Plastics can be highly beneficial and seem user-friendly! Sadly, they are actually not!

The toxic substance they emit when they come in contact with heat can cause unimaginable spoils to the soil where the trees are. The simple logic of plastic, that it doesn't allow the leakage to happen can be the regretted fact when it is under the soil. It doesn't allow any leakage to happen be it the raindrops or any such.

OK! Even if we all get into the track and STRICTLY OBEY TO THROW THE GARBAGE ONLY IN DUSTBINS, and plastics are separated from the degradable wastes and sent for recycling.

Once again, the whole lot process will happen to make that piece of evil work for us again in the nothing but same way.

For that to be recycled again a lot of resources would be employed, the waste liquid from the process causes water pollution, the smoke/gas from the process causes air pollution and keeps us drenched in the poisonous atmosphere forever.

This, it's better to give up plastics rather to give up ourselves! Think for yourself.

Polythene, the worse creation of human beings. It is the major cause of land pollution. It is a non-degradable substance. Due to the lack of decomposition, it remains as it is for a long period of time. Polybag is frequently used in the market, towns, and villages as it is cheap and having the strength to carry more loads. Disposal of polythene leads to major environmental problems. Many times stray animals eat polybag along with waste food and die.

According to my opinion, I think polythene bags should not be banned. As it is very easy to carry. Nowadays 80% of the products are made up of polythene. So the end of polythene means the end of polythene products as well as bags which affects the company's productivity. It will not have any effect on its economic value but also will result in increased unemployment in the country.

So if any country has decided to ban the polythene then first it must provide its suitable replacement. The replacement which will provide the same solutions to the people and well as gives its better contribution towards the development of the country and to reduce the pollution.

Here if we move towards the use of paper bags instead of polythene bags, then after some time we will suffer from many environmental problems because cutting of trees for paper leads to deforestation which leads to soil erosion. So paper bags are not a suitable replacement for it because we don't want a solution for some time. We actually need a permanent solution of it.

I think the use of polythene bags should not be banned. Instead of it, we should try to find a solution to reusing it. Recycling of polyethene doesn't lead to any environmental problems as well as easy to carry.

First, we need to change ourselves them only we can Change the world.

Plastic bags pollute our land and water. Because they are so lightweight, plastic bags can travel long distances by wind and water. They litter our landscapes, get caught in fences and trees, float around in waterways, and can eventually make their way into the worlds oceans.

Plastic bags are made from non-renewable resources and contribute to climate change. The majority of plastic bags are made of polypropylene, a material that is made from petroleum and natural gas. Both of these materials are non-renewable fossil fuel-based resources and through their extraction and production, they create greenhouse gases, which contribute to global climate change.

The production of these bags is also very energy intensive. To produce nine plastic bags, it takes the equivalent energy to drive a car one kilometre (more than 0.5 miles).

Using these non-renewable resources to make plastic bags is very short-sighted, considering that the typical useful life of each plastic bag is about 12 minutes.

Plastic bags never break down. Petroleum-based plastic bags do not truly degrade. What does occur is that when out in the environment, the plastic breaks up into tiny little pieces that end up in the ocean to be consumed by wildlife. Today, there are an estimated 46, 000-1, 000, 000 plastic fragments floating within every square mile of our worlds oceans. Other governments are banning plastic bags, so yours should too or at least make people pay for them. To date, more than 40 countries and municipalities around the world have instituted plastic bag bans. The United Nations Environmental Programme Secretariat has recommended a ban on all plastic bags globally.

We should stop the use polythene bags but we can't because if we stop then we would prefer for paper bags which leads to excessive deforestation cutting of trees will increase whereas we are facing the problem of global warming.

I would suggest that shopkeeper should use 'used newspaper ' for packing the items because I went to sikkim once and that state is polythene free because they use newspapers for packing the goods and after all there is no use of newspaper we do after one tym reading and we have to become more responsible by not throwing polythene here and there. We can't always asked government for action atleast our little support will help to make our country clean.

Hello friends.

According to my opinion, polythene bags should be banned because polythene is harmful in many ways such as.

1) When polythene is burned it produces many harmful gases which cause air pollution and when we breathe, it affects our respiratory system.

2) polythene is non-biodegradable. It takes many years in degradation which causes soil pollution and result is that fertility of the soil is decreased.

3) Many peoples after using polythene they throw it and when these polythene bags consumed or eat by the animal such as cow, dog. It causes cancer.

4) if we recycle polythene it requires a lot of money.

At last but not the least, I suggested that we have to replace polythene bags with the reusable bags such as jute bags.

Hi Friends,

I don't agree that polythene should be banned. Yes, but I would appreciate if it will be produced in lesser quantity because it is actually affecting our environment badly. But solution starts when everyone has put a limitation to use any resource provided to us. I have seen that we have started using every resource badly which give such kind of results where we have to come with such strict restrictions.

I wanted to say that we should try to use less polythene and try to recycle it as much as we can. When I say recycle it means that we should use one polythene many times. I have seen a lot of people are purchasing polythene crazily. In super market, in mall everywhere. We don't carry any bag before we go shopping and when a seller asked us in the counter to add a carry bag for our items then we say yes without thinking twice just because it cost not more than Rs.5. But we never had a thought that it can cost our lives because we can't destroy or dispose of polythenes.

I would request to all the readers to recycle the use of polythene because it's not you who do this there are n numbers of people who do this.

According to the survey, India current population is 1,359, 892,158 and everyone is doing this on a daily basis. Because they purchase daily and to carry it, they need a carry bag, if this will continue then it will create a huge bad impact in the environment and every citizen of this earth will suffer alot. We are actually giving a very bad environment to our future generation.

Hello everyone,

In my opinion, It should not be completely banned. If paper bags are not available then polythene bags can be use. It can be use for multiple times.

Everywhere we are paying for bags in malls, shops etc. Instead of that, we can ask for a paper bag because we are paying for that.

People should not throw polythene bag outside on roads. I saw cows were eating that bags because that they may get choke and can die. At least we should take care of these things.

Definitely, we should recycle it since it's non-degradable material.

So we all are here setting together to discuss the topic as given by the management,

Sir, I agreed with the others point but I wanted to add some of my thoughts in this topic, a/c to me plastic bag should not be banned, if need to banned then it should be our usage style, in daily life people after using of polythene bags they just throw up anywhere as a result 100% polythenes not reached their recycling process, many of friends are talking about the use of paper bag instead of polythene bag but everyone should have to know paper is made by tree and for paper if we start cutting tree that will be more dangerous for the human being, so according to me instead of changing our system firstly we should have to bring change in our usage habits, if plastic bags not burnt-out in atmosphere, not thrown everywhere then it can be 100% recycled every time and that will save our resources also.

Thank you.

Polythene bags must be banned. It is an hazard to the environment. It not only pollutes the environment but also effects our health.

It affects stray animals who eat these polythene bags lying on the road. When it is burned it causes air pollution which leads to breathing problems and many more.

In my point of view, polythene is one of the boons for our world. Why because 5 grams of polythene can carry 500grams of the load. And also it has long durable, waterproof characters. But the problem is, the people those who are all using polythene are not handling properly. They are all simply throwing outside of his campus. This activity creates soil pollution as well as water pollution. So people should know the principle of 3R. That means, (reduce, reuse, recycle).

Endless lists and just suppose how much poisonous gases are produced during making of all these. Not only in India but polythene use must be banned all over the world. Instead we should use jute and Cotton made bags that will bring opportunity for poor farmers to grow jute and cotton in their land for earnings as these plants don't need so much care for their growth.

According to my opinion, I think polythene bags should not be banned. As it is very easy to carry. Nowadays 80% of the products are made up of polythene. So the end of polythene means the end of polythene products as well as bags which affects the company's productivity. It will not have any effect on its economic value but also will result in increasing of unemployment in the country.

So if any country has decided to ban the polythene then first it must provide its suitable replacement. The replacement which will provide the same solutions to the people and well as gives its better contribution towards the development of the country and to reduce the pollution.

Here if we move towards the use of paper bags instead of polythene bags, then after sometime we will suffer from many environmental problems because cutting of trees for paper leads to deforestation which leads to soil erosion. So paper bags are not a suitable replacement for it because we don't want a solution for some time. We actually need a permanent solution of it.

I think the use of polythene bags should not be banned. Instead of it, we should try to find a solution to reusing it. Recycling of polythene doesn't lead to any environmental problems as well as easy to carry.

First, we need to change ourselves them only we can Change the world.

The use of polythene has been a great issue these days.
In my opinion, use of polythene should be banned because it has only one merit but has n number of demerits. Before some days there was a news regarding the death of cows which is due to eating of these polythenes.
And another main reason is that when the polythenes are thrown away, it makes the soil very difficult to absorb the water, as a result the level of water is reducing tremendously.

Nowadays paper bags are available everywhere, so we can use it plentily as it is eco-friendly and has no harmful effects on humans.

Though the use of plastic and polythene bags has become a part and parcel of our day to day life, yet we cannot ignore the ill effects of it. Besides the various environmental issues which such products pose, there are various health issues involved which cannot be overlooked.

Therefore such bags should be banned completely. It will be difficult to get rid of it initially but in order to discontinue its use, some alternative remedy by way of environmental friendly bags should be invested.

Moreover governmental agencies and NGO's can work a great deal in spreading awareness about the harmful effects of poly-bags and should encourage people to switch to environmental friendly bags. In order to maintain ecological balance such steps should be taken fast.

Hi everybody,

I think plastic bags should not be banned because nowadays it becomes our daily uses material. Also there are a lot of people get employed in plastic industry, if it would be completely banned the the would be unemployed. Plastic bags are also cheaper than other carrying material. Also there are many kind of products, we can not carry that without plastic material or we don't have alternative, for examples medicine some other FMCG products.

There are many negative impact of using plastic bags, like it is non-biodegradable, creating more water and soil pollution, toxic chemicals are used to manufacture and emitting different kind of non environment friendly gases while burning, which creates air pollution and make impacts on Ozone layer.

Conclusion:- Instead of completely ban of plastic bags or materials we can use the concept of 4 R, which is recycle reuse, reduce and recover. Instead of taking millions of job we can provide millions of job. They will work on this four principal and educate the people, with the help of this we can create unemployment and stop all this negative impacts. There are many countries like US they are using vastly the plastic materials but using as well these four principal. Our government should also take such kind of step, which will also help to the swachh Bharat mission.
