Jalandhar, August 5

With an aim to stop the practice of using single-use plastic, Kapurthala Deputy Commissioner Vishesh Sarangal launched an awareness campaign to promote the use of alternative sources instead of plastic in the district on Friday.

During a district-level programme organised by the district administration and Punjab Pollution Control Board here at Virsa Vihar, the DC said: “We need to work together for environment protection following the teachings of Gurbani to ensure a safe future for our next generations.”

He talked about negative effects of single-use plastic through a comprehensive presentation, besides urging school students, NGOs, government officials and employees to be a part of the campaign to use jute and cloth bags instead of plastic.

Meanwhile, the DC started distribution of jute bags by the district administration and PPCB to encourage people to use these bags while going to market.

Earlier, Additional Deputy Commissioner UD Anupam Keller welcomed the chief guest and others while sharing her views about the use of plastic.
