No matter how much we try to deny it, but with time, plastic has become a part and parcel of our lives. We have become so addicted to plastic use that we do not even want to reduce its consumption or maybe look for alternative methods. However, few understand the heavy cost that the world would have to pay if we do not stop irresponsible and incessant use of plastic. One such person is a 36-year-old, a resident of Odisha’s Mayurbhanj district, in order to spread the same awareness to others has decided to dress as polythene and roam on the streets of Odisha.

Dressed with a cardboard crown on his head and plastic bottles and bags hanging from his shoulder to his toe, Bishnu Bhagat, Odisha’s “chalta firta dustbin” (walking dustbin) goes out on the streets daily. He does not care about the jokes and laughter that are made on him as he passes by. He says, “If I look ugly to you (people), think about the earth and what we have made it.” Indeed his worries are poignant. His aim is to convey only one message to people, which is, “to save the future, don’t use polythene bags”.

While talking to the ANI, Bhagat says that people should stop using the hazards plastic. He asks people to cut down plastics from their daily lives, whether they are using it for sipping tea or as shopping bags.

He says, “I just want to send out a clear message to people that plastic is very harmful to the environment. I am wearing this dress made of plastic so that I can also teach children regarding the same. I urge you all not to use plastic and its products in order to keep the environment clean and green,” as reported by The Asian Age.
