Resources for Environment & Ecology:  Tools

  1. A series of educational posters on the ban on plastics by Ecoexist. A ban on plastic such as the one in Maharashtra (2018) is not enough to change the situation. While a ban definitely helps, its implementation is tricky and not fool proof. Citizens need to take ownership of the ban, to recognise the importance of cleaning up our environment and of avoiding the use of single use plastic disposables. (checked on 27 Nov. 2018)
