Guna (Madhya Pradesh): A mass awareness rally to create awareness against the use of single-use plastic was organised here on Friday by Municipal Council Guna along with NCC cadets.

Chief municipal officer Tej Singh Yadav along with executive engineer BR Gupta flagged off the rally from the Municipal Council office located on Hanuman square. Participants of the rally highlighted the reasons to avoid single-use plastic, and suggested sustainable alternatives instead of single-use plastic since this plastic is hazardous to health and also causes environmental degradation.

In addition to that, participants distributed cloth bags and awareness pamphlets to local shopkeepers and vendors and informed them of the harmful consequences of using plastic. The volunteers spread the message of "Say No to Plastic” and its harmful effects on all the ecosystems.
