Society needs to devise mechanisms of caring for the environment sustainability. Every citizen needs to have civic sense to reduce the pollution at individual level. Plastic is one such material which harms environment tremendously because of that many state governments in the country have banned plastic usage. Because of this step, many shop keepers have started charging for the plastic bag to carry the goods be it food, clothing and other sun dries. Hence, consumers started carrying their own shopping bags to super markets which implies that consumers are becoming conscious about environment protection. Not much research is done to understand the eco-friendly behavior patterns of rural people. The present study explored the behavior of 105 people from rural areas to understand whether they were conscious about the ill effects of environmental pollution and to assess their eco-friendly behaviour patterns in order to protect the environment. Results revealed that majority of the respondents have exhibited eco consciousness.
