Plastic pollution is a major problem that plagues the world. Samira Satija, a female resident of Gurgaon, Haryana, India, thought of renting stainless steel cutlery, hoping to reduce the frequency of using disposable tableware and to cope with plastic pollution.
After seeing the scene of disposable tableware and cattle swallowing foamy plates in the roadside ditch, Satija couldn't sit still. The Hindustan Times quoted her on the 9th as saying: "I feel angry when I see disposable tableware that can be seen everywhere on the ground." She opened a stainless steel cutlery bank and rented stainless steel cutlery for free, as long as people wash it back after use.
At the beginning of the tableware bank, Satija purchased a small number of cups and plates from her own pocket. Later, her ideas were supported by family and friends. Up to now, the bank has more than 400 stainless steel cutlery. She hopes to rent stainless steel cutlery at some large events to reduce the use of disposable tableware. According to her, the bank has received several “orders” in the local area in July. "I want to tell everyone that there is a way to solve the problem of disposable tableware."
