Commerce ministry directs firms to cut single-use plastic in packaging

The trade and industry service has prompted web-based business organisations to slowly slice single-utilisation of plastic in the bundling of items being sold through their foundation, in accordance with the administration’s responsibility to lessen utilisation of such material, the government sources said.

The organisations have likewise been instructed by the Department for Promotion with respect to Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) to create practical bundling material which will add to decreasing India’s plastic impression internationally.

E-commerce companies have been asked for discarding plastic used in packaging, which accounts for more than 40 percent of non-fiber plastic, according to the official.

“With an earnest ambition to stop consumption of single-use plastic, these companies are being advised to consider gradually curtailing the use of single-use plastic in packaging products being sold through their e-commerce platform,” the official told English news agency.

The DPIIT is taking and planning a series of steps under the Plastic Waste Free-Swachhata Hi Seva Campaign – 2019.
