Getting relief from plastic wastes

Finance minister has allocated Rs.10 crore in Kerala to convert plastic wastes into pellets.

From his latest budget speech:
"Plastic waste has become a major threat to the environment and to cleanliness. Plastic ban has not been effective. It is proposed to set up small scale units in all Block Panchayats and Municipalities to convert plastic waste into pellets. Rs.10 crore required for this purpose would be met by Suchitwa Mission and Kudumbasree. It is expected that each unit would provide employment to 10 to 15 women."
