Benches made of recycled Tetra Pak cartons set up to raise consumer awareness by Telangana State Pollution Control Board and Commercial Tax department
The Telangana State Pollution Control Board and Commercial Tax department, as a showcase of their commitment to promoting environmentally friendly practices, have setup benches made of recycled Tetra Pak cartons in the visitor area to inspire citizens about the positive impact of recycling.
The initiative took place today under the guidance of Ms. Neetu Kumari Prasad, IAS, Member Secretary, Telangana State Pollution Control Board and Commissioner for Commercial Tax, Government of Telangana. It demonstrated the value of recyclable materials like Tetra Pak cartons which can be recycled into a wealth of new items like benches and desks.
Ms. Neetu Kumari Prasad said “The intent behind setting up benches made of recycled Tetra Pak cartons is to show citizens that a small act of waste segregation at home can give a new life to recyclable materials like these. We all have the power to make a difference, simply by following environmentally practices in our daily lives- choosing products that are recyclable, consuming responsibly and finally disposing of them responsibly.”
Through better waste segregation and recycling, it is possible to reduce the amount of waste being dumped by 85-90%. The district has introduced many interventions for source segregation of waste and recycling over the past few years. These benches made of recycled Tetra Pak cartons are a tangible example for consumers to adopt recycling in their lives.
