One lakh chocolate wrappers removed from Palakkad city in a single day
Palakkad: When waste was collected from the Palakkad city in a day, there were one lakh toffee wrappers in the collected waste.
As part of the ‘one man cleaning initiative for 24 hours’, Deepak Varma, a native of Akathethara, collected these wrappers from the wastes. Deepak has stepped out for the mission declaring solidarity with the waste management mission undertaken by the Suchitwa Mission, Haritha Keralam Mission and Palakkad Municipality collaborately.
“Though these sweets are available at a cost of Rs 1, these wrappers are the most difficult plastic waste to manage,” said Deepak Varma.
Municipality chairperson Prameela Sasidharan inaugurated the initiative on Saturday.
