Mumbai: For Ganesh Chaturthi festivities, which fall in September, actress and UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador Dia Mirza want people to shun plastic. Dia on Tuesday tweeted a message for leaders in Mumbai to contribute a bit by eradicating the use of plastics in pandals.
“This year as we approach Ganesh Utsav, it will be incredible to see all our MPs, MLAs and leaders display their solidarity for Swachh Bharat by making our pandals free of plastics and plaster of paris,” she wrote.
