Why not reusable bags?
A suggestion to the Railways to recycle and resuse the paper covers of bed sheets has been made in this thread. Do you have any other useful suggestions about things used on trains which could help to save the environment?
These days in all the trains in AC coaches free blankets, bedsheets and pillows are being given for use during the travel. After each use, they will be again washed and ironed and distributed to the passengers. These bedsheets are kept in a paper cover and it will be thrown immediately after taking out the bedsheets. So every day so many bags will be used and it may be recycled or the majority may be wasted also. We always talk about deforestation and pollution. If the Indian Railways can think of giving these bedsheets in a reusable bag and if they are also cleaned and used again and again, the usage of paper bags will come down. It will save a lot of Paper and hence it will save many trees. I feel the government should think and see that they are replaced with reusable bags. Otherwise, they can give the bedsheets as it is without keeping in the covers. I like to know the opinion of the members on this issue.
