Are packing materials a major culprit in land pollution?

Any purchased item comes neatly wrapped and packaged.  Good packaging is also part of a marketing strategy. The packing materials are usually plastic covers, cardboard, cartons, Thermocol ,  small plastic tags, ropes, paper e.t.c . Though there is an awareness campaign for people to come with their own bags, small plastic covers are part of any purchase. Just imagine non bio degradable waste collected across the world is dumped in one single location. It would be higher than the highest summit of Himalayas.

It is heartening to see the waster paper and scrap dealer’s collecting packing material from environment cleaners.
