Independence Day initiative: Ask for dustbin!

garbage dumpyard

What would you do if having a small chocolate, you couldn’t find a dustbin? You’ll throw that wrapper away. Unaware of even it can be a cause of innumerable diseases.

Facts:

Almost people equal to the population of Los Angeles,
die each year from hygiene-related causes.

Filthy garbage system claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.

Today, more people owns a mobile phone than owning a dust bin.

People who live in high-density pollution area, have 20% higher risk of dying from lung cancer, than people living in less polluted areas.

Every year, an average Indian throw away enough paper and wrappers to circle the earth 100 times.

Yes! These are few of many unknown facts of the harm caused by garbage. We, at India.com went to various shops to see who are sophisticated enough to keep a dustbin and who are not. The ones who were not having dustbin got a reality check from us.

Check out the video to know what we did to those shopkeepers.
