This year, India is hosting World Environment Day with ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ as the theme. Kartik Aaryan, who is popular with the Gen Next thanks to his youth-oriented films like the Pyaar Ka Punchnama series and the blockbuster hit Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, talks about the importance of saving the environment and avoiding the use of plastic, thereby creating awareness for the cause.
Yes, I have. First of all, I love having plants in my home — if you come to my house, you’ll find a lot of greenery. Also, I like doing things that reduce pollution and something that will not cause harm in the longer run. In my growing-up years, I was influenced by my parents. My mom and dad were always against using plastic bags and it has been passed on to me. I used either cloth bags or those that can be recycled.
Many people have started using paper bags, but you need to be careful because this means more trees are getting cut. So, cloth and jute bags are a good option.
