It is for saving our environment from polluting. It is a common scene to see plastic bags being dumped in lakes, near roads and on barren lands which are a threat to the animals and also the human being in the long run. The whole human race has to understand this and minimize the usage of plastic bags.

I recently visited Munnar at Kerala, a hill station. I was really astonished to see that you will not find a single plastic bag at any of the shops ranging from small to big. Great they want to keep their city clean and green. Are we Nagpurians ready for keeping our city clean and green ?
