The recent initiative to start the ‘’Plastic Bags se Azadi’’ campaign is a laudable move. Though it might not help in directly reducing global warming but help in reducing the land pollution and protecting plants and animals in the country.
The initiative is being carried out across the country with a special focus on the federal capital. In my opinion the campaign should have started from Karachi, which suffers the most from acute soil pollution.
The public’s reaction to the campaign is mixed. While some citizens have appreciated it, others quarters are criticizing the action, especially small businesses like food stalls and milk shops. Not everyone carries steel containers to buy milk and many others cannot afford to purchase the more expensive packaged milk. One prays the move to remove the plastic bags from our lives meet with success.
