Tata Power Supports Reducing Usage of Plastic Materials
OREANDA-NEWS. June 26, 2012.
This initiative was organized to encourage environment conservation by reducing the usage of plastic materials. The village women and children were shown the importance of using homemade cotton bags for their day to day usage instead of plastic bags at an event organized at Anganwadi in Village Kandagara, Mundra.
The locals were also educated on the degradation of the quality of food when stored in plastic bags, non bio-degradable characteristic of plastic that renders it difficult for disposal and also its detrimental effects on the environment in general.
Speaking on the campaign, Mr. K.K. Sharma Head CGPL said “We are delighted with the success of this initiative, the response received has been very positive. We would like to thank our women employees who have taken up this initiative.”
In this appeal to stop using plastic bags, various alternatives were suggested and the village women and children were taught to make different kinds of reusable eco-friendly bags.
