Indian people walk through plastic garbage on Chowpatty beach in Mumbai on December 10, 2012. Though the government has imposed a blanket ban on the use of thin plastic bags -- measuring less than 50 microns thick -- the ban is rarely enforced, with vegetable and fruit sellers, small shops and takeaway restaurants still freely using cheap, thin bags to package their products.
