MMC urged people to celebrate the festival without fire crackers

Goa : With Diwali just a few days away, chief officer of Margao Municipal Council (MMC) Agnelo Fernandes on Tuesday urged people of Margao to celebrate the festival without the use of fire crackers and to refrain from using single-use plastic items in an attempt to contain harm to the environment.“Let each one of us make a little difference by not burning fire crackers during this Diwali and let’s make use of bags and containers made from eco-friendly material,” Fernandes said.

He has also urged shopkeepers not to provide plastic carry bags below 50 microns to their customers and to instead use cloth bags, non-plastic items and containers for packaging, gifts, parcels, etc.“These plastic items litter the streets, block the drains and when burnt release toxic chemicals and contaminate the air,” Fernandes said.
