Is plastic bag ban for the environment or new way of earning for mega stores? - part 2

In continuation of my previous article titled, "Is plastic bag ban for the environment or new way of earning for mega stores?" which was a discussion about the loot going on in mall in the name of saving environment. I was delighted to see paper bags or cotton bags were given to the customers who doesn't bring their own bags for shopping at malls in Udaipur, Rajasthan.

Above images shows that Rajasthan is really thinking about saving the environment by using paper or cotton bags instead of polythin bags. Even I discuss with some of my friends from other states about this issue and they also mentioned that their respective states are also following same practice.

Therefore, My question is for shopping malls in Gujarat that when are they start such practice. I know our Gujarati people may argue that it will ultimately increase the cost of bags and customer only has to suffer but I also analyze that they are charging 2 Rupees for the bag shown in picture 1 and 5 Rupees for the bag shown in picture 2 which is lesser than the polythin bag we buy nowadays. My humble request to all the malls in Gujarat to stop cheating customer by selling same polythin bag in the name of environment and start thinking in a real way to save environment.
