Since June 2002, Saahas has been working on a campaign called Less Plastic for Me. The campaign is focussed on the need to cut consumption of disposable plastic products.
Individuals are encouraged to carry their own shopping bag and refuse use of plastic carry bags and cups. Supermarkets are also encouraged to reduce use of plastic covers. The campaign makes available cloth bags, which are supplied, to both large and small shops across Bangalore at a minimal cost.
Over the last three years , we have established a network of volunteers comprising students, housewives and other professionals who continue to work with various supermarkets and other outlets -
Last year the campaign was supported by Wipro Cares during which time we worked in Koramgala together with Namdaris and Safal
Currently the campaign is working together with various other initiatives in the city to spread the message of 'Less Plastic for Me.'
