Doing the needful
Select City Walk in Delhi is among the biggest and the most popular malls in Delhi. We know the Select City Walk to be the place where you can find the most popular and the most exclusive of brands, from Burberry and Chanel to bath and Body Works and Muji, there are a ton of brands in Select City Walk. Yet, this piece of news is entirely different from anything you might have heard about the mall.
In recent updates, Select City Walk will soon become the first mall in Delhi to go plastic fee. Read on to find out more.
In order to ensure that Delhi achieves its goal to go plastic-free, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) recently carried out a drive to make five prominent markets plastic free. Saket is one of the markets, since Select City Walk is located in Saket, it will also be a huge part of the initiative.
According to civic officials Delhi's Select City Walk will become the first mall in the city to go plastic free!
This directly means that shops and showrooms inside the mall will no longer provide plastic bags to their patrons. According a report by HT, the south corporation has also said that SDA market in Hauz Khas is also set to go plastic-free.
According to the same report, around 170 showrooms and 30 eateries in Select City Walk have decided to shun plastic. This move alone will decrease the usage of 10 kilos of plastic every single day.
The initiative taken by South Delhi corporation and Select City Walk is commendable and we hope more malls, shops and markets in Delhi follow suit. With the global environment in such grave danger, drastic measures are needed to help the environment and do the needful for our city.
