In This West Bengal Club, Exchange Plastic Waste For Two Masks and One Hand Sanitiser
West Bengal Club in Burdwan is running a bank where you can deposit plastic waste or plants and get two masks and one litre of hand sanitiser
In a great initiative by a West Bengal based club, their members are inviting people to deposit plastic or plants, in exchange for masks and hand sanitisers.
The Palla Road Palli Mangal Samity in Burdwan has started a bank, where one can donate five kilograms of discarded plastic waste or plants and get two masks and one litre of sanitiser in return.
While the plastic is recycled to make eco-bricks, the plants deposited are replanted on the roadsides and near the banks of the river.
If one does not have either plastic or plants to donate, they can still purchase the masks and the sanitiser for just Rs 49.
At a time when the world is fighting the deadly coronavirus, it is heart-warming to see people coming forward with innovative ideas. With this unique barter program, the club is tackling the dual issue of COVID19 and pollution caused by plastic. Not only this, they are also increasing the ecological and environmental value of the earth in their own small way, by planting more trees.
