Take a SmallStep for a big change today!

Small Steps for a Sustainable Future

The time is now ripe for our joint action against usage of plastic carry bags. Do you know?
  • It takes a thousand years for one plastic bag to decompose
  • One billion animals die from ingesting these deadly plastic bags every year
  • Yet, world over, close to five hundred billion plastic bags are produced and consumed each year
  • Every time we use a plastic carry bag, we contribute to this problem
On this World Environment Day, each one of us should resolve to do as much as we can to avoid plastics.
  • Always carry a small foldable bag with you when you go out. You never know when you will stop to purchase a little something on the way
  • The times when you forget the foldable bag and you "get" a plastic bag, reuse the plastic bag as many times as possible
  • When the time has come to dispose the plastic bags, dispose it off in a responsible manner. Don't just "throw" it away.
  • Be an ambassador of this change.
  • Take your Small Step today. Help us save our planet from ourselves.
Here is a video that triggered the plastic ban in California.
