(a) We use different packaging materials. The most common ones are -

1. Plastic - used for shopping bags

2. Cardboard - to make cartons for shoes, toys, clothes, etc

3. wooden boxes - for packaging fruits, delicate items etc

(b) Plastics should be avoided as much as possible since it is non-biodegradable and unsafe for environment.

(c) Packaging should ideally be done to keep the goods safe and protect them from tampering. These days packaging is also done to beautify the goods and add value.Large volume of packaging is thrown into dustbins and goes as waste once the product is out, thus increasing garbage.

Thanks & Regards,
