"stop using plastic, the result will be fantastic"

As cheesy as some of the placards may have been (this was one of the

better ones), I was impressed to learn that Darjeeling, and as I would

later find out, Sikkim as well, has banned the use of plastic bags.

A small procession carrying anti-litter and anti-plastic placards

walked through the city and ended at the Chowrasta, where a series of

educational skits were performed.

A truck was collecting plastic bags to be recycled into pipes for public use.
