The civic body in south Delhi has taken a new green initiative. According to this initiative, a person who brings one kg of plastic waste will get a free meal at a restaurant. The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has termed the initiative ‘Garbage Cafe’.
Under this innovative concept, in exchange of plastic waste, free meals will be provided to citizens by a restaurant in Vardhman Mall, Dwarka.
“The restaurant will offer free breakfast, lunch or dinner for bringing one kg of plastic waste. The plastic waste will include empty water bottles, cold drink bottles, plastic canes and other such items,” the SDMC said in a statement.
This initiative has been taken to keep the city plastic-free, where needy people and rag-pickers can also take advantage of this facility of free meals. This scheme will be implemented in other wards of Najafgarh Zone as well, the statement said.
