Bhuj: Tata Power, India's largest integrated utility, organised a special no
plastic campaign at Kandagara village in Gujarat. The campaign was organised
by a group of women employees from the Mundra team.
This initiative was organised to encourage environment conservation by reducing the usage of plastic materials. The women and children from the village were shown the importance of using homemade cotton bags for their day-to-day usage instead of plastic bags at an event organised at Anganwadi in Kandagara village, 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, KK Sharma, head, Coastal Gujrat Power, 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 women and children were taught to make different kinds of reusable eco-friendly bags.
