‘Try Back to Nature’ - it tastes wonderful ; People urged to refrain from using plastic straws



Port Blair, Aug 28: Over the years, plastic has been one of the larger polluters to tourism areas. A pristine tourist spot is spoilt by the use of plastic. The Secretary, (IP&T), in her limited touring of Port Blair has come across many hotels, restaurants, roadside eateries, beachside, tender coconut water sellers, who are using plastic straws. The areas around is littered with these straws, which are not only one time usage but also choke the environment.
As an input for improving the tourism experience, the IP&T Secretary, Dr Pooja Joshi has urged the people to make efforts to go 'Back to Nature' and completely ban the use of plastic straws for the same. The tourists may find it a unique experience to drink 'Daab' (tender coconut) in its natural way in Andamans. A small effort can go a long way in marking the positive intervention of Andaman Administration towards the goals set by the Prime Minister on reducing usage of plastic, a communication said.
