The non-biodegradable solid waste component comprises plastic waste (like carry bags, bottles, cups and lids). About 14,53,500 plastic cups, 6,00,000 plastic water pouches, 84,000 water bottles are generated in express train a daily basis !
What do you think will be the outcome of this for our environment?
This data presents an alarming condition for proportions of disposal plastic cups and glasses that are sold by caterers, restaurants, local vendors and large pantries suppliers.
Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. One million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans.
This contamination caused by plastic cups and glasses has spread in a lengths and widths of the country adversely affecting the landscapes, water bodies, groundwater and most importantly the health of a large number of population.
And we can’t escape the plastic pollution either!
First introduced to the railways by a multinational company Coca Cola, soft drinks vending machines are popular because the profits can be precisely billed by the number of disposable plastic cups used-unlike stalls with reusable kulhars glasses or paper cups and glasses! It is unfortunate that such a huge establishment does not have a specific policy vis-a-vis the environment.
