About five years ago, subrnan Subramanian and Gauri Krishnan gave up their lucrative careers in the It field and did their part to promote the environment --
A friendly way of life.
The idea of their choice revolves around the popularity of cloth bags, which have gradually been replaced by the popularity of plastic bags.
\"For us, cloth bags symbolize the principle of reuse.
In my childhood I saw my family using the same cloth bag for many years and after that it was used as a kitchen cloth and then thrown away and allowed to break down in the natural environment, \"Sir. Krishnan said.
The idea of making hundreds of cotton cloth bags from 2014, mostly distributed to friends and activists, has now become a yellow bag (or Manjapai), a self-
A humble house maintains business in the densely populated malwaream Lane.
The business provides direct employment for at least 50 women and provides nearly 50,000 cloth bags, mainly shopping bags, to customers across India every month.
\"We are also sorting out other similar
Those who want to enter the field of cloth bag manufacturing have ideas . \"Krishnan said.
As a person committed to environmental sustainability, he welcomed the proposed ban on single

Part of his concern stems from the government\'s need to strengthen small-
While enforcing the ban, expand the size of the industry that produces alternatives such as cloth bags.
While the yellow bag was one of the first such moves to enter bag manufacturing and marketing, Mr.
No single, says Krishna.
In recent years, the use of plastic in Karnataka, Kerala and Maharashtra has attracted even greater companies to make cloth bags.
\"To some extent, this is necessary and inevitable, because the market needs a lot of cloth bags and the price is cheaper, which is equivalent to the cost of plastic bags,\" he said . \".
\"The downside, however, is the idea of the environment --
Friendliness and reuse are compromised.
More importantly, manufacturing is not a labor force.
He added.
For example, he pointed out that the manufacturing process of the yellow bag is decentralized and production is mainly done by women from their own families.
\"It creates more jobs, and the profits we pay to women are much higher than those paid by larger manufacturing units,\" he said ,\"Krishnan says.

He pointed out that the material may be better than plastic bags, but it cannot be completely biodegradable.
\"In addition, large units are mainly designed to meet the needs of the market to comply with the government ban at the cheapest price.
A popular supermarket chain has publicly asked manufacturers like the United States to provide bags of the lowest quality.
If the bags are in good condition only because they ship items to the customer\'s car from the cash counter, they are OK.
What happens to the idea of reuse, \"he asked.
He believes that banning plastics can only be effective if the mentality of re-use changes, saying that the government must encourage small-scale-
The scale industry has become part of this change.
\"The debate should not focus on providing cloth bags at the same price as plastic bags, but on the idea of reuse,\" he stressed . \".
\"One thing the government can do is encourage the formation of small clusters.
Developing scale industries, such as farmers\' producer organizations, with financial support can meet growing demand while maintaining quality and creating more jobs . \"
Krishna suggested.
\"The government is now organizing the Expo in all regions and it is a welcome move for organizations like us to showcase products.
\"There should be more such support,\" he added . \".
