PAPER BAG DAY!!

Paper bags are bio-degradable and if they are burnt, they do not pollute air as much as poly bags do.  People are taking keen interest, these days, on issues related to Nature and are taking multiple initiatives to keep their environment clean and nature green. They understand the hazardous impact of the polythene bags we use on the environment. They have also started realising that paper bags are a wonderful and useful replacement to the polythene bags. 

This Paper Bag Day, come join us virtually, in learning how to make simple paper bags from the comfort of your homes. Make as many paper bags as you can and distribute them to the friendly vendors at the corner of your house to use. Or in case you can’t go out, you can use them yourself, making a conscious decision to use paper bags starting now.
