Delhi Newsline

THE Environment Ministry of the Delhi government has made it mandatory for all five-star, four-star hotels, restaurants with more than 100 seats and hospitals to use degradable plastic bags.

‘‘The plastic bags, which are used now-a-days, not only pollute the environment but are also harmful to animals if swallowed. The degradable bags, when exposed to sunlight, lose their form and mix with the soil. We have written to these units to start using degradable plastic bags,’’ said an Environment Ministry official.
