Single-use plastic ban drives demand for wood, bamboo

India produces gigantic amounts of plastic waste – more than 3.5 million tonne (mt) a year – and over a third of this is not recycled, creating a health and environment nightmare. As a solution to this intractable problem, India decided to ban the use of single-use plastic products such as straws, polythene bags, etc. effective July 1.

The federal government has warned manufacturers to be careful about the usage of single-use plastic. If found to be using the banned items, the units would be seized and would face heavy penalties.

The ban on single-use plastics has led to an increase in demand for wood and bamboo dealers as manufacturers are now looking to switch to eco-friendly options, according to a report by Just Dial, which helps users find all kinds of vendors through its large database.
