The project currently takes into account single-use (disposable) plastic and will cover all three terminals of IGI airport.
Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport is all set to become the first plastic-free airport in India in the next five months, according to a report by TOI.
Disposable plastic items that are thrown away after one use come under this category.
This initiative aligns itself with the government’s goal of eliminating all single-use plastic by 2022.
Reports suggest that several outlets at the Delhi airport have already replaced single-use plastic with paper and bio-based compostable materials.
Reports further state that, after Delhi, Bengaluru International Airport is also taking necessary steps to ban the use of single-use plastic.
This is an appreciable effort keeping in mind the problems increasing amount of plastic waste is posing to us.
