Plastic fully banned in Gurdwara Bangla Sahib

NEW DELHI, India—On the eve of 550th birth anniversary of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has completely banned the use of plastic in Gurdwara Bangla Sahib.

Sharing the development with media, the DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa informed that the use of disposable glasses, spoons, thermocol cups and plates have been completely banned in Gurdwara Sri Bangla Sahib with effect from October 2 and the devotees are being served langar in steel utensils.

“We have established a recycling plant of two tons capacity to recycle the remained items of langar and dry leaves,” he added.

Sirsa further informed that for the time being this plant has been installed just for testing and if it remained successful, then it will be installed as a zero waste model to recycle the waste in an eco-friendly way.

“We have started the use of natural gas through pipelines to cook langar while following the environment norms and to improve the air quality,” he added.
