Sajjad Ali Pagarkar shared his experience:
Thank you for allowing us to write our views on plastic.
1. I am trying to ensure that cotton bags are always placed in my scooter and car
2. I will buy curd using the steel tiffin boxes and steel utensils. Milk can be purchased using steel cans or glass bottles.
3. I bought mutton taking a plastic container along (good quality plastic grade 7). I bought the vegetables and fruits and placed them all in my cotton bag.
My challenge is to find out an alternative for wet and dry garbage; especially for wet garbage.
