Source: The Hindu, Date: September , 2016

The Wayanad district administration is gearing up to ban the use and supply of plastic products such as carrybags, disposable plates, thermocol disposable wares, and plastic disposable tumblers in the district from October 2. Wayanad Collector B.S. Thirumeni on Thursday sought the cooperation of the public and merchant community to make the mission a big success as the ban envisaged to conserve the beauty of the hill district and avoid environmental hazards relating to plastic in the region, an ecological hot spot on the Western Ghats.
