Today is World Environment Day and Hyderabad - GHMC is doing its share for a better environment. The “Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation” (GHMC) has imposed a complete ban on the manufacture, usage and storage of any kind of plastic carry bags. Plastic is not biodegradable. The plastic bags and packing we use so extensively during shopping for carrying merchandise to our houses can last as waste for thousands of years. These plastic bags and wrappers create serious environmental problems and are a menace to society. They block sewerages, drains and waterways and are also harmful to animals.
