Bravo! we too are resorting to other material at home and spreading the mssg!— Meena Das Narayan (@MeenaDasNarayan) October 6, 2019
This was the practice even in my state Goa which is one the largest fish eating state, before plastic arrived on the scene and for conveinience we just started using it. We should go back to this way or carry our own containers else we will not find fish in future to eat.— Sidharth Naik (@sidharth_naik) October 6, 2019

Leaves can grow back as long as trees are there.— à®¸à¯ÂÂÂà®°à¯ÂÂÂà®ÂÂÂà¯ÂÂÂà®®à®¾à®°à¯ÂÂÂ (@KannanSrikumar) October 6, 2019
To get more leaves, ppl themselves will plant more trees.
Plastic use will kill soil, make it unfertile & destruction of trees.
When there is no trees where can there be leaves?
