If this really happens it is fantastic news:
- trash around the railways will be reduced
- using alernative resources was almost forgotten after polyethine conquered the world.
I once talked with and Indian army official on a research project. He told me that 'Indians are used to littering', like their clay cups, babana leaves etc... Finally, so-called 'modernity' and the idea to produce all this with the industry came: now, they still do the same but the stuff (polyethine) does just not rotten. They were used to take jute bags to shopping, today they use polyethine bags...
Idiots like Coke and Pepsi are trying to oust the working Indian bottle refund system by introducing their 2 littre plastic bottles... I hope India does tackle such attempts
There are so many means to live environmental friendly, and a country like India will make big benefits. Environment does not have to be in contradiction to development, indeed India can go for 'sustained growth' in taking a leaddership in this alternative sector. Polution and unsustained growth is a big problem. Our kids will be happy!
Save the planet
After living long in Germany: this is a very good example for a relatively quite well functioning environmental sector
Edit: The term freedom fighter in India of course solely refers to the anti-colonial struggle
