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.
