GHIA declares itself as 'single-use plastic free Airport from Mar 1

Hyderabad: In line with the Government of India’s campaign to phase out Single-use Plastics (SUP) by 2022, GMR led Hyderabad International Airport (GHIA) has declared itself as single-use plastic free Airport from March 1, 2020.
Zero tolerance on usage of single-use plastic has been imposed across the Airport. It includes all concessionaires and service providers operating at the Airport, GHIA said in a release here on Tuesday.
The Airport had been steadily phasing out use of non-recyclable plastic over the past few years and in the final phase, “Single-Use Plastic Free Airport” campaign was initiated in last month during which the airport stakeholders, like the Food and Beverage (F&B) outlets, fully switched over to sustainable eco-friendly alternatives like corn starch plates, wooden spoons and forks; retailers started using only biodegradable boxes and covers to reduce the airport’s plastic footprint.
Besides this, Hyderabad International Airport has also been encouraging eco-friendly products like Jute Bags through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm GMR Varalakshmi Foundation (GMRVF).
