Beat plastic pollution: good news from India

This book covers a holistic overview of the Indian plastic industry, existing challenges, the role of citizen groups and, most importantly, the role of the informal sector. The Indian lifestyle is based on a maximal recovery of resources before disposal. This lifestyle of repair and reuse forms the basis of waste to wealth (kabad se jugad) pathways contributing to a relatively high plastics recycling rate of almost sixty percent as compared to the global recycling rate of fourteen percent.
