Illustrating an example, she said birds and animals are found feeding on plastic wastages scattered in rivers, dustbins and other places and on consumption of these animals whether meat, fish or fowl could pose threat to human health.

Cautioning that plastic is made from harmful chemicals, Kenye advised the gathering not to use plastic plate, cup, spoon, fork or bowl which people mostly prefer to use when it comes to common meal sharing during social gatherings, festivals, weddings etc. She suggested alternative ways of using the ones made of steel and paper and also put forward the idea insisting to use one’s own water bottle instead of relying on packaged mineral water bottle for health issues and also to reduce the buying of bottled water and also save money.

Kenye went on recommending to avoid single - use plastic bags and opt for environment-friendly bags like cloth-bags specially for shopping and further encouraged the colony members to contribute towards the cleanliness process and said “ if we don’t kill pollution, pollution will kill us , “

Meanwhile, Imsu Yanger, Executive Engineering PWD advocating on “clean election”, appealed the colony men and women of the age 18 years and above to exercise their franchise on 11 of April 2019 scheduled for the ensuing Lok Sabha Election.
