For one time cooking an average family of 6 people daily uses 5-6 plastic bags for fruits and vegetables according to a survey conducted. Majority of bags used in everyday fruits and vegetables shopping. These bags are also not food grade so that they cannot be environment friendly as they are not biodegradable. Instead of using plastic bags subzi.pk have developed a basket from plastic waste for carrying groceries and other items that can be recycled several times, they send items in basket for delivery and get it back from the customer as this stops circulation of plastic bags. These baskets are made by house wives and their family members in fact they are getting a handsome income from this project. Another basket is made from Date leaves that can be used 150 times for carrying groceries and even after that can be used for decoration purpose.
