As per report the plastic industry has alleged that the state government has not given them enough time to prepare, prior to implementing the plastic ban. Earlier on World Environment Day this year, with a view to curb the effects of plastic on the environment, the Tamilnadu government announced a ban on non-biodegradable and single use plastic and had recommended the use of natural, environmental friendly products.
Furthermore when explaining the dangers that the use of plastic has, on the environment and on animals, Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami told the Assembly on June 5, “With the vision of gifting a plastic free Tamilnadu to our future generation, the government hereby bans the use of plastic goods of all sizes (microns).” Reportedly traders in Thoothukudi district too downed their shutters, condemning "the state government for not giving proper alternatives for the ancillary businesses."
Moreover when speaking to the newspaper, Thoothukudi Plastic Manufacturers and Sellers Association President Senthil Kumar said, "While it was said that paper cups, non-woven carry bags, Polypropylene (PP covers) and aluminium foil could be used as alternatives, some officials say that these are also banned. Even though we also subscribe to the idea of a plastic ban in the state, it is disheartening to note that our concerns were not taken into account by the Chief Minister."
