Plastic-bag ban makes reusable fabric bags popular
Sep '09
Environmental-friendly fabric bags have now become very popular among the people in Srinagar as they are reusable and have many benefits. Ban on plastic-bags that had been imposed two months before, made the people here to carry eco-friendly bags including jute, fabric or recycled paper bags.

Increased demand of these bags made the sellers happy which helped them generate extra income on sales from these eco-friendly bags. On the other hand, residents of Srinagar are also glad with such an initiative of government that is making their picturesque town cleaner and healthier.

This ban on plastic bags also lends a hand in generating jobs for the people who can now earn money by manufacturing fabric bags from cloth and recycled paper such as newspapers.
Due to this, cottage industry is also seeing improvement and now the people have started stitching cloth bags too, which are also becoming popular.
