Ubiquitous use of Plastic /Poly Bags have adversely affected the natural resources and environment of our country in direct & indirect ways. In spite of their multiple beneficial utilities from the aspects of consumers, they are causing huge pollution, and irreparable damage to the environment.
Considering 4 R’s of Waste Management Tool – ie : Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover – SIDDHA-CSR has launched an Environment Protective Measure (“Refuse Poly Bag” ) since 2014 .
