Ecosac Utility Bags recycles Household Plastic Bags to Polyfuel through a public campaign

Citizens from all over Mumbai participated to convert 850 kilos of plastic bags into poly fuel and reduce 5100 kilos of carbon dioxide from the environment

Ecosac, a brand of utility shopping bags in India amplified the Maharashtra Government’s ban on single-use plastic bags, by involving citizens of Mumbai in its #37forecosac campaign. In the month of June from World Environment day 05/06/18 till World Population Day 11/07/18 Ecosac called upon citizens to exchange 37 or more medium & large sized plastic bags and in exchange rewarded them an eco-friendly high utility Reusable ECOSAC Bag. 


With a startling response received from Mumbaikars, the bag brand collected 850 kilos of plastic from over 7000 households and societies, which resulted in reduction of 5100 kilos of carbon dioxide through a zero emission process. Ecosac tied up with Rudra Environmental Services, a nonprofit based out of Pune, involved in to recycling of plastic into industrial polyfuel. The entire process of collection of plastic, exchange of eco-friendly Reusable Ecosac bags, transfer of plastic to the plant and its processing took the company more than 75 days. Citizens from households, housing societies, schools and even corporates participated in this campaign against the pollution monster. Plastic bags was collected from their doorstep through a well-structured logistical method. Edelweiss, Nalanda Public School, Shree Bhuvendra CHS - Dahisar, Paradise Society - Raheja Vihar - Powai are some names that took part in this campaign.

An elated Anil Chowta, CEO, Ecosac said, ‘Citizens enthusiastically participated in the campaign, which was way beyond our expectation! Initially, Plastic bag collection was a herculean task and logistically a challenge. 
However, despite the initial hiccups, we managed to reach out to maximum number of responsible citizens who contacted us.  People now, are more responsible and aware, and it has been our endeavor as a company to do our small bit to save the environment.
 Rudra Environment Solution has been phenomenal in converting waste plastic into industrial fuel through TCD i.e. Thermo Catalytic Depolymerisation Process. Their partnership and the supportive policies of the government have together given an impetus to the success of our campaign’
If the concept of ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle‘has to be defined, then ECOSAC bags are the perfect example, also the perfect  solution for consumers and retailers towards the government’s ban on plastic. The world is expected to consume around 5 trillion plastic bags a year – i.e., about 1 million bags a minute. With this innovative product, the ratio of consumption can be reduced down to 1 ECOSAC bag: 1000 plastic bags, considering the amount of plastic bags consumed over 3 years (which is the average lifespan of an ECOSAC bag).
Ecosac has also recently made news with its #EcofriendlyMumbaikar Campaign where it called upon Ganesh devotees performing eco-friendly practices to participate and win, thereby encouraging the eco-friendly sentiment amongst the citizens.
In an era of single time use and throw, Ecosac has been working relentlessly towards Reuse and making the world a better place for the future generations.
