It’s known to us that the use of plastics are totally detrimental to the environment, and researchers pursuing research to find a feasible substitute.Despite the growing significance of sustainability and the awareness  created at the elementary level, we fall for this ‘easy’ material.Patriotism, a  factor that could be defined as an innate feeling of pride in one’s own nation is often turning ‘plastic’ I.e. turning to be temporary and bogus. By the term  plastic patriotism it chiefly pertains to the use of plastic products and goods to decorate the streets during the independence season.

Can Plastic products instill in itself the consciousness and integrity of our nation?Think over it.
