Plastic bags are one of the main causes of pollution around the world and the focus on plastic bag reduction is ongoing. Plastic sized particles outnumber plankton 6 to 1 and it is often mistaken as food by birds/animals, especially marine, but it actually can be a killer for them. Plastic waste is found in landfills, in streets, on mountains, in rivers, in oceans, unfortunately, almost everywhere.
The purpose of this IW District 342 (Pakistan) project and campaign was to create awareness among the people to use environmentally friendly bags instead of plastic bags. District 342 teamed up under the Chairmanship of Farhat Sarosh starting "NO TO PLASTIC BAGS" campaign.
All D342 Clubs joined hands and distributed cloth bags to the shoppers at Islamabad's weekly market. Our initiative was very well received by the people who enthusiastically collected bags from the members. Our Club members also raised awareness in different localities and reached out to community. "TOGETHER WE CAN" to make a DIFFERENCE.
