In an innovative attempt, Chhttisgarh’s Ambikapur has launched a Garbage cafe where citizens would be able to get free meal in lieu of plastic waste.
For every half or one kg of the plastic, free food would be provided.
It is estimated that such initiatives would help poor, homeless and ragpickers.
Chhattisgarh’s health minister T S Singhdeo inaugurated the Garbage Cafe and said, “This initiative will help the state rank higher in terms of Swach Bharat initiative.”
It is to be noted that Ambikapur had jumped 15 positions to become second clean city after Indore.
The garbage cafe has been opened at bus-stands of Ambikapur, so that is easy to access.
