RAI has submitted a representation to Delhi Government to throw light on the repercussions of using paper bags towards the environment and the threats it poses to the natural resources.
RAI believe that Paper Bags also relay an immense impact on the environment in terms of global warming, energy and water consumption, and waste generation. These factors lead to paper bags impacting the environment in a similar manner as plastic bags and hence need to be treated similarly. There is strong need to prevent the massive deforestation for manufacturing of paper bags.
