What they say



A. Narayanan

A. Narayanan, Environment activist and Editor of Paadam: “The thin carry bags and disposable items dumped into sewer lines and stormwater drains lead to overflow. The Chennai Corporation's move would only prevent visual pollution. Large amount of plastic wet waste is generated through packaging of food in restaurants and roadside eateries. Hazardous chemicals and metal oxides may leak into the foodstuff, posing health risks. Plastic bags up to 60 microns have to be banned, as recycling and incineration is possible only with such thickness. The need of the hour is a stringent policy in regard to environmental pollution and littering.”
