Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the government led under his leadership has taken some bold and impressive steps, specifically addressing the issues of the environment. While the awareness has been spread through Swacch Bharat Abhiyan and such other initiatives. Recently, it was learnt that on an auspicious occasion of Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti, a nation-wide ban will be imposed on plastic bags, cups and straws.

The items like plastic bags, cups, straws, plates, small bottles and some types of sachets will be included in the ban list. PM Narendra Modi is set to launch the campaign on 2nd October taking into consideration the rising issues of pollution. The proper alternatives are said to replace the above-mentioned items.

The main aim of the ban is to restrict the use of single-use plastic items, which is one of the major causes behind global warming.

Expectedly, this major move of the government has been lauded by many and also Bollywood has come forward to promote it and encourage more people.

Recently, David Dhawan, Varun Dhawan, Sara Ali Khan and the team of Coolie No. 1 announced that they have gone ‘plastic-free’ during the shoot. Varun Dhawan and makers shared a post on Twitter which featured Coolie team with steel bottles in hand, thus preventing the use of plastic bottles.

Soon after the post, Coolie No. 1 was rightly described as Bollywood’s first plastic-free movie and we just hope that more such big banners promote this step and encourage others to follow.

On the whole, the government’s decision is highly appreciable and a true tribute to the father of our nation.
