Usage is easy, Cleanup is very hard. Plastic has become comfort thing of human life for the last 3 decades and now raising serious concerns for the environment. Mostly there is less awareness in cities and rural areas as government is not taking as challenge in this area which already is a bigger problem in both cities and rural villages. 80% of villages does not have waste management programmes, as local governing bodies do not know how to handle the waste and pushing waste to unused yards, irrigation canals, dumping yards or road side areas.
