Chhattisgarh Bans PVC Used in Carry Bags

The Chhattisgarh government has taken a revolutionary step for sustainable development by banning the use of chlorinated plastic and short-life Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).
  • The advertising and promotion of materials like PVC banners, flex, and hoardings have also been banned in the state. 
  • Manufacture, storage, import, sale, transport and use of such plastic-borne goods is also banned.
“From the Article 48-A of the Constitution of India, it is expected that every state will try to conserve and improve the environment. But these plastic-borne goods cause blockages in drains and gutters, leading to serious environmental problems,” the notification read.
