 PLASTIC BAGS TO BE STRICTLY BANNED IN DIMAPUR WITHIN A MONTH OR TWO

Dimapur Sumi Baptist Church (DSBC) was declared a plastic free zone on April 15 in an attempt to stop the use of plastic products in the Church premises. The declaration was made by Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC) administrator, Moa Sangtam at a one-day training program on paper bag making conducted at DSBC, Anwar Hussain road, near NST, Dimapur.

The program was organised by DMC, in collaboration with CAN Youth and Women Ministry. 

During the declaration, Moa Sangtam stated that DSBC was the first Church which has declared itself a Plastic Free Zone and he encouraged other Churches to follow suit. He also spoke about the hazards plastics pose to the environment and daily life and challenged the gathering to avoid using plastic bags.

Sangtam also stated that within a month or two, plastic bags will be strictly banned and he requested the public to cooperate with the DMC to make Dimapur a better and cleaner place to live in. 

CAN Youth chief functionary, Jenpu Rongmei also delivered a short message during the declaration program, where he stated that CAN Youth has been organizing paper bag making training programs since 2015. 

According to Jenpu, people are very keen to keep themselves as clean as possible, but unless they minimise or strictly ban plastic use, this cleanliness can never be achieved. He further encouraged the gathering to spread the message of plastics and the problems it causes. 

The program was chaired CAN Youth secretary, Kivitoli K Sema and the invocation was earlier offered by associate pastor, Women, DSBC, Khetoni Shikhu. 

DSBC, senior pastor, Rev. S. Vitoshe Swu delivered short words of gratitude, where he thanked and acknowledged the DMC and CAN Youth for the program. 

The benediction to close the program was said by DSBC associate pastor, Children, Vishiho.
