Vishnu hasn't completed a profile. Should we look for some other people?

How do we reduce single use and disposable plastics in our package, production and supply streams and move towards a sustainable world?.
After a recent legislation, in my city Bangalore, shops began to charge extra for polythene / plastic bags. This reduced their usage considerably. Actually I have sturdy jute bags of various sizes that I reuse to carry my shopping and actively refuse any polythene bags. I have seen many others following the trend of carrying bags from home for their shopping. More than plastic bottles, the polyethylene bags are a bigger mess as they tend to mix more with the soil, rendering it difficult for plants to grow. Governments all across the world should tax plastic packaging more and make other forms of packaging (jute, paper) more economically viable. http://www.mid-day.com/news/2011/mar/310311-polythene-bags-less-than-40-microns.htm
