Plastic ban: Paper glasses to be introduced at railway stations in Mumbai

Following the plastic ban, the railway authorities have decided to replace plastic glasses with paper glasses across the suburban trains and stations in the city. The paper glasses will be introduced for the water vending machines, catering stalls and inside long distance trains, making a huge impact on the lives of 79 lakh commuters who travel by the suburban railways every day.

The stations and its surrounding areas have become dumping grounds with the accumulation of tonnes of litter which mostly consist of plastic wastes mixed with silt and muck. The pollution demands an instant clean-up, hence the move comes into play.
