Let’s come together to build a society that surrenders to sustainability. Oceans sustain all life on earth, a sustainable future is only that we can have. How individuals can contribute to a sustainable future?

How? Here are some clues:

 If communities can come up together to protect plastic production. One of the most practical solutions to the plastic problem is to prevent the plastic from being made in the first place.

 *Brands have a responsibility to produce less, and consumers have a responsibility to consume less.

 *Stop throwing away plastic. Stop using plastic bags, small size water bottles. Try to reuse the product, as much as you can.

 *Stop purchasing wrapped in plastic, fruits and Vegetables.*Collaborate with nature to live a healthy life.

 *Don’t cut into piece plastic while opening open any packet of, Chips, milk packets, water pouches, oil pouches, small sachets etc items, the small piece left and later thrown into the garbage is difficult to segregate and recycle.

Without Government support and involvement, the task is not possible to achieve. The government of India must implicit and support.

        Introduction of Plastic Banks: Plastic Banks are such universal stores that exchange goods of necessity against plastic waste from individual and form corporate as well.  Everything from school tuition to cooking fuel and more is available for purchase in exchange for plastic garbage. This waste/litter is later is sorted, shredded and sold to brands who reuse “social plastic” in their products.
IN Indonesia PEOPLE can pay bus fare with plastic waste instead of money

 Legalization: Disposable Food-ware must to legalized. Govt should promote and benefit startups in the business of  Disposable Foodware.

 Food vendors should be provided with good waivers for use recyclable alternatives for foodware items not available or reasonably priced in compliant compostable formats.Food vendors offering to eat “on the premises” (eat-in) may only use reusable foodware (durable/washable) for eating-in.

 The government should provide technical Assistance and Mini-Grants will be available to support food vendors in establishing new facilities and practices to meet reusable eat-in foodware requirements.

 Bottle brick, technology started nine years ago in India, is still not popular. This technology is providing a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional building bricks. Corporate should come forwards take up such working ideas up to commercial levels.
