When you see plastic, just bend and pick up

The multi-lingual Kannada actress Bhavana joins a camp organised by the Cubbon park walkers’ association to create awareness on making Bangalore’s iconic garden plastic-free, on Monday.

Hopefully, the big white bag on the right isn’t plastic.

    This is a routine ritual of ivory tower residents around Cubbon Park. They make sure that all the newspapers send their photographers when they ‘bend and pick’.

    Pastic is a consequence of culture. In India, people feel it’s below their dignity to carry proper bags. Walk into any supermakert and you see most of the fruits and vegetable pre-packet in plastic wrappers.

    The problem doesn’t vaish because you discard them in a bin.

    I would pick up Bhavana any day and recycle her as a Bollywood Queen!

  3. Faldo Says:

    When you see plastic “and the cameras are clicking”, make sure you bend and pick it up!

  4. Vinay N. Says:

    The drama continues to be played out and the name of the play is called ‘Tokenism’. Tokens must transform into way of life and lets hope that what happens.

    @M,
    When it comes to plastic, science has failed humanity. Science hasn’t found a good answer for plastic disposal. Its unfair to blame humanity for plastic mess.

    Coming to the cubbon-park camp, I hope they pick up *any* litter too, instead of just plastic litter.

    We the human kind have misused every scientific invention. Plastic is no exception.

    ‘World Environment Day’ (June 5) special!

  9. Anonymous Guy Says:

    The uglies surrounding Bhavana spoiling the pic. BTW what to do with plastic we pick up? Is there a way to ensure it is recycled and not dumped on the outskirts of Bangalore?

    This is such a pathetic attempt at PR. What is she trying to do – attempt to enter bollywood.

    Lame attempt, and lame media at work.
