Move over, plastic bags!
A voluntary organisation is showing people how to make their own cloth bags
Sumithra Sekar and Shreekanth Murali regularly attend social activities organised by non-governmental organisations. At these events, they encountered a recurrent issue — participants would bring plastic bags and bottles with them, but would not care to take them away.
They wanted to do something about this. After sifting through various options, they decided to start a voluntary organisation that would create awareness about cloth bags, including how to make them at home.
