Plastic waste free India


Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Smriti Manch is constantly engaged in ventures to make India free of Plastic waste. As we all know that plastic waste problem has become a matter of grave concern for the entire world. The Manch has been running the awareness programs for the masses and educate them about the seriousness of the concerned matter. Recently our beloved Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has been conferred the prestigious and much coveted “Champions of the Earth” award by the United Nations for his stewardship of the International Solar Alliance and his commitment towards saving the environment. It is his commitment to make India free of ‘Single Use Plastics’ by the year 2022 and we the members of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Smriti Manch are willing to support the Prime Minister in his mission.


We are willing to join hands and take this mission to masses through our awareness programs and projects. We educate people about good and bad plastics, as in India, they are not aware about basic differences between various kinds of plastics. Single use plastics are the bad plastics and pose a great threat to the environment. It is the need of the hour to immediately stop the use of single use plastics like thin plastic bags and glasses, plastic straws, spoons etc. and replace them with eco-friendly recyclable materials. Good plastics are those that are multipurpose and can be easily recycled like water, juice, oil and soft drink bottles. Once disposed off and they are collected, and sent to the recycling facilities where they can be converted into other useful materials.

Reverse Vending Machines


Recently we have been working for installation of Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs) which take in the used PET bottles and crush and shred them into pieces. This way the used bottles occupy less space and are recycled into useful stuff; like the plastic fibres are created and mixed with natural fibres to create hybrid fabric that has many uses like making T-shirts, shopping bag, tents, parachutes, pillows; anywhere where one needs fabric that will not rip off easily. We would like to install these RVMs at various significant venues and in our opinion it will be of great use in keeping environment clean and devoid of plastic waste.

Welfare of Rag Pickers


Rag pickers in India are the poorest of the poor that earn their living through recycling of waste. Their work is of phenomenal importance as they do collection, sorting and segregation of waste and earn their living. They work without any job security, salary or social dignity. Living in utter poverty they go through humiliation, harassment, and abuse; they are vulnerably exposed to cuts, wounds, infections and respiratory diseases. The rag pickers should be registered so that they and their families are able to obtain the health benefits, safety gear and social security. In waste collection, plastic garbage is of utmost importance hence we should focus on creating an organized collection and recycling mechanism to promote recycling of good plastic like PET bottles, HDPE (High Density Poly Ethylene), etc.


The need of the hour is to implement a robust collection and recycling infrastructure so that recovery is able to match pace with production and usage of plastics in India. We need to establish a sustainable ecosystem for waste collection and management system with rag pickers, recyclers and waste processors as their integral part.
