AAI makes 35 airports plastic-free, 20 more in line
Updated : June 14, 2019 09:12 AM IST
Single-use plastics or disposable plastics are used only once before they are thrown or recycled.
Items like plastic bags, straws, coffee stirrers, soda and water bottles, six-pack rings, plastic party cups and most food packaging fall under the single-use plastic category.
“The single-use plastics constitute 33 percent of all plastic waste. AAI has been carrying out internal audits of its airports along with stakeholders,” an AAI official said.
