In small villages, people face many difficulties in employment. It helps those needy people so that they can earn the money.
Make Plastic-free India
This is a major step towards a plastic-free India. The kulhad is dissolved in the soil sometime after it is disposed of. There are many benefits of clay cups which really give an amazing taste to tea and people like to drink it.
Soil is best in its own way as it gives many health benefits to the people and is environmentally friendly. According to a research, Mithi Kulhad are more preferred by Indians than plastic cups.
Plastic took millions of years to dissolve in the soil and even it produces toxic smoke in the air while burning. Plastic is harmful in every way, there is no way to deal with it.
This step taken by government will surely help us to make plastic-free India. Millions of plastic cups are disposed of every day by the railways. It is our duty to protect our environment so we can try to reduce plastic pollution. As a citizen, we try to reduce the use of pollution.
