We also cover our plants with plastic bags to prevent them from frosting at night. Basically, plastic bags can be improvised to do so many things and are therefore very handy at home.
The reason why plastic bags are so popular is that they are cheaper than eco-friendly bags. Furthermore, plastic bags are waterproof and very convenient during rainy days. There are many advantages we can accrue from using plastic bags.
The Madras high court has ordered notice to the state government to banning use and manufacture of plastic bags. Non-woven bags are fabric – like bags made from spun-bonded polypropylene (PP), used to make plastic utilities.
With only a fortnight left for the plastic ban to come into effect in the state, the Tamil Nadu. Plastics Manufacturer’s Association has moved the Madras high seeking to quash a government order imposing the prohibition.
Manufacturing of plastic was being carried out by the petitioners in conformity to the norms and standards prescribed by the central legislation and within the parameters of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). While so, there could not be any order of total ban to manufacture of plastics in the state in supersession of central legislation. The state had no legislative competence to pass such order, the association added.
