Uses of plastic bags and environmental hazard- A study in Guwahati city
The present pattern of human activity has challenged all the living forms on the earth. Development of science and technological knowledge and experiences of human beings have brought to the fore the conflict between biosphere of Man's inheritance and the techno-sphere of His creation. One of the modern conveniences without which daily life of man cannot be imagined is plastic bags. These cheap, light weighted bags function as a means of carrying food and other goods. The threat to environment and quality of life has been due to accumulation of plastic bags wastes. They are environmental unfriendly to its extreme level. The usage of plastic bags and further ‘throw away culture’ have resulted in finding their ways into the city drainage system, clogging the drains leading to sanitation problems, sewage problems which ultimately cause severe flash flood in the city. In this study an attempt will be made regarding the usage of plastic bags and environmental hazard with special reference to Guwahati. In this study descriptive method will be used and sample will be selected based on purposive sampling techniques.
