With ever increasing products, there is no doubt that there are products made of polythene and plastic. This has rendered many unhealthy conditions for human beings and has challenged their existence as their impact is always negative. Owing to this, marine pollution has brought many risks to inculpable sea creatures. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the use of polythene and ‘single use of plastic. Don’t you think that it’s inspiring to see a restaurant which has completely cut down the ‘single use of plastic’?
