SAMBALPUR, NOV 24, 2022
Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL) has initiated a drive to reduce usage of “single-use plastic” by distributing jute bags in peripheral households, motivating people to shun plastic bags and care for environment.
In the first phase of this awareness campaign, MCL will distribute 10,000 jute bags among people in Sambalpur.
The company, through its Department of Environment & Forest, is organising information camps at different locations to spread awareness on clean environment and distributing jute bags among people.
The campaign has received encouraging response from people, particularly the students’ community.
Celebrating 30 years of excellence, MCL, a “Mini-Ratna” Govt of India Enterprise, has also planted over 6.5 million saplings in and around its command area spread over in Angul, Jharsuguda, Sundargarh and Sambalpur districts of Odisha.
