From conducting a prolonged drive to make a stretch of Vikas Marg free of single-use plastic to staging street theatres to raise awareness, the civic body in east Delhi is running a campaign to promote cleanliness and sustainability.
As part of its larger vision for a cleaner and greener environment, the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) Tuesday launched 'Pollution Mitigation Action Plan 2021-2022'.
A senior official said the civic body has been running the campaign to cut use of plastic, and civic teams are conducting awareness drives too, including through 'nukkad natak'.
Starting October 1, a month-long drive had been started to make a stretch of Vikas Marg single-use plastic-free as a demonstrative activity to motivate the masses and set an example.
"Our teams go on that stretch from time to time, and talk to people and distribute handbills to raise awareness," the official said.The campaign also finds space in the pollution mitigation action plan of the civic body.
