Bengaluru is being swept by citizen-led plastic bans

While laws and regulations banning the use of plastic bags and wrappers lag in the government, neighborhoods within the city of Bengaluru (Bangalore) have taken it upon themselves to remove wasteful plastic from their communities and their environment. From organizing marches and demonstrations, to creating clever alternatives - such as renting reusable bags from stores and wrapping goods in newspaper - numerous zones within the city are going plastic waste-free on their own initiative, and inspiring their neighbors to do the same.
