MPCB to distribute 52 lakh cloth bags for free in Maharashtra

To drive home its message of doing away with plastics and create eco-friendly alternatives for it, the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) will distribute around 52 lakh cloth bags free of cost to people in all municipal bodies in the state. The program, which will be launched from September 15 onwards, will see around three lakh bags being given out in Mumbai alone.
