Everyone knows that plastic is bad for the planet. However, few people understand the human side of this story though.

In India about 18 million children live on the street, which is the highest in the world. More than 19 million Indians make less than 1 dollar per day. There is a shortage of 18.78 million houses in the country. More than 15,000 tonnes of plastic waste is generated in India every day.
