Polythene for the betterment of the environment.
We are using polythene for various purposes every day and after using it we throw the polythene here and there but then where is it going! Polythene can survive in soil for up to 1000 years. In other words, no matter where we throw polythene, it will not be lost, it will remain in the environment in one way or another. And most of the time those places are either rivers or seas. As a result, they harm the organism and, of course, disturb the balance of the environment by blocking the flow of water. In Bangladesh, the traditional method of removing plastic or polythene waste is to burn it. But it also does a lot of damage to the environment. According to a survey, there are more than one thousand polythene factories in Bangladesh from which about one and a half crore polythene is being produced every day. But because of its affordable price and usefulness, its use could not be stopped at all even by law. Polythene is a harmful substance that causes a lot of damage to the environment, soil, water, air, etc. It has a lifespan of many years, so the amount of damage is much higher.
Jute is called the golden fiber of Bangladesh. We all know that jute is a perishable product. The government has made the use of jute bags compulsory. But if this jute can be used to make bags like polythene, then what is the matter! This impossible has been made possible by Dr. Mubarak Ahmed Khan, Scientific Adviser of Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation. He discovered it in 2018 and named this Sonali Bag.
He said that if ordinary polythene can take 10 kg of things, these polythene can take 15 kg of things. Dissolve in water within 4 to 5 hours. It burns to ashes and this ash can be used on land as fertilizer. The biggest thing is that it does not harm the environment at all and it can be recycled. This Sonali Bag is made of raw material by separating cellulose from jute katis and various chemicals are used to make it which is a secret.
