A set of children's books paint an ugly picture of plastic
On average, a person in India uses 20-40kg of plastic in a year. It clogs drains, kills animals and piles up in landfills. If you ask Poonam Bir Kasturi, a Bangalore-based composting and recycling evangelist, that’s 20-40kg worth of reasons why future consumers, i.e. children, need to understand the perils of plastic and change their usage patterns. “But often, when we talk to kids about issues of sustainability, it becomes a boring lecture," says Kasturi, who is the founder of Daily Dump, a company that makes compost Kambhas (pots).
