Dimapur, Dec. 6 (EMN): A stall called Coming Generation Kohima at the Bamboo Pavilion at Kisama village in Kohima districy is managed by a group of upcoming entrepreneurs. The products there are tagged ‘Nagaland Says No to Plastic,’ according to updates from the DIPR on Thursday.
It was an innovative idea initiated by the young upcoming generation with the vision to use other perishable and biodegradable items instead of plastic bags.
The main purpose to setting up stall is in line with the Hornbill Festival’s declaration to do away with plastic bags and other non-degradable articles, which people often discard after use. It is also to promote and encourage use of degradable items which in turn make our environment eco-friendly and free from soil, water and air pollution, the updates stated.
The products displayed at the stall are made of coconut and betel leaves. Cloth bags, spoons, fork, paper bags etc are available at the stall for sale. This venture will continue as an annual event coinciding with the Hornbill festival, Assistant Project Coordinator, Wawe-ii Kenye said.
