Tamil Nadu Meendum Manjappai Scheme 2024 - CM Promotes Usage of Cloth Bags instead of Plastic Bags | TN Go Green Initiative

Good news for citizens of Tamilnadu ! The state govt. of Tamil Nadu starts Meendum Manjappai Scheme 2024 as a go green initiative. Chief Minister M.K. Stalin earlier on 23 December 2021 launched Meendum Manjappai Yojana to promote usage of cloth bags by public. Through this initiative, CM wants to discourage the use of plastic bags which have become rampant in the state over the years. Contending that usage of single-use-plastic is harmful to environment, Mr. MK Stalin called upon the people to completely reduce its usage.

Meendum Manjappai Scheme 2024 in Tamil Nadu

Tamil Nadu CM M.K Stalin launches TN Meendum Manjappai Scheme in Kalaivanar Arangam. CM MK Stalin recalled how long ago yellow-coloured cloth bags were symbolic of auspicious occasion but eventually plastic bags replaced them. He also listed out harmful effects of single-use plastic products and highlighted the need for replacing plastic bags with cloth bags.

Discouraging Use of Plastic Bags in TN Meendum Manjappai Yojana 

While launching the Tamilnadu Meendum Manjappai Yojana, CM reiterated that "If plastics are thrown away, it would take several years for it to decompose. It adversely affects the soil quality, air quality and water bodies. 

Soil Pollution due to Single Use Plastic Usage in Tamilnadu

Soil Pollution is caused when people throw plastic bags in open fields or agricultural lands. If the soil is affected, agriculture would be affected which directly affects life of people. Moreover, cattle eat plastics and die. Through TN Meendum Manjappai Scheme, govt. will promote use of cloth bags instead of plastic bags which are easy to decompose and will prevent soil pollution.

Water Pollution through Plastic Bags in TN State

CM MK Stalin pointed out that if plastic carry bags are thrown into waterbodies, then the organisms present there are affected and the water is polluted too. He added that the sea is affected when single-use plastic products are thrown into it and aquatic species feed on them and die. Through Tamil Nadu Meendum Manjappai Scheme, govt. will promote use of cloth bags instead of plastic bags which will prevent water pollution and thus save life of aquatic animals.   

Air Pollution by Plastic Bags in Tamil Nadu

Toxic chemicals emanate from burning single-use plastic products and they affect the air quality, Mr. Stalin said. So, considering the extent of its damage to the environment, CM appealed to citizens to stop the use of plastics. 
Thus it can be inferred that in order to prevent soil pollution, air pollution, water pollution and to save aqua species, discouraging use of plastic bags is necessary.

Encouraging Usage of Cloth Bags

Tamil Nadu govt. will encourage the usage of cloth bags instead of plastic bags as a part of its Go Green initiative. Those people who does not use cloth bags and still use plastic bags would face consequences. So far, electricity connection to 130 factories have been withdrawn for violating the ban against single-use plastics. CM said that the government alone could not implement this, but the general public should join hands. If people reject plastic products, there can be a definite change.
