The most easily available objects in the town may be plastic bags. You enter home with vegetables wrapped in these bags. You see them littering literally every inch of Kathmandu’s space. They are there in the piles of garbage and if you have looked into Kathmandu’s rivers after the heavy rains, you must have seen a sea of plastics floating. So is the case with other major towns and emerging marketplaces across the country.
KATHMANDU, Aug 20: The executive council of Khumbu Pasanglhamu Rural Municipality in Solukhumbu district in the Everest region has decided to ban plastic items of less than 30 microns thickness in the rural municipality.
