Everyone wore a mask, including Rajat Bansal on World Environment Day


In an awareness programme on the World Environment Day, Managing Director D & CEO of Raipur Smart city and Commissioner of Raipur Municipal Corporation, Rajat Bansal along with other social organisations, depicted the ill-effects of using plastic by wearing a mask. An exemplary way of showcasing this was that the officials covered the Mor Raipur logo with plastic and demonstrated that if not taken adequate care, our city would be endangered with the wrath of plastic. This Mor Raipur logo is a popular selfie point in city.

Shubhangi Apte, Limca book of record holder for distributing cloth bags and spreading awareness regarding the same; was also present in the event. She emphasised on the double benefit of using cloth bags. “This would make all the women from the self-help group, independent as well as the dream to achieve plastic-free Raipur could be achieved”,
she said. This initiative will empower the “No Plastic” campaign too. In this event, “E-waste bin” was also inaugurated in the presence of MLA Shrichand Sundarani, which will enable the Raipurians to get rid of their electronic waste in a jiffy.
