India’s favourite beach destination, Goa has banned single-use plastic. The Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) announced that plastic items such as plastic glasses, and bottle cups have been banned from its hotels and headquarters, effective immediately.
The state took upon the New Year Resolution of getting rid of single-use plastic by 2022 and as a part of the initiative, the state government banned the use of items like straws, disposable glasses, bags and cutlery from September. Goa Tourism now joins the band wagon in support of the plan to go completely plastic-free. If you too wish to contribute to the cause, all you have to do is choose to stay in one of the GTDC hotels and say NO to plastic.
