Crush the Plastic and Earn Cashback!

In a way to cleaner India, Indian Railways on Wednesday installed plastic bottle crushers at the Vodadara Railway station which aims at minimising plastic waste and will be installed railway stations across the country
The process is like every time a user enters his/her mobile number into the machine and inserts a plastic bottle in it, a cashback of Rs 5 will be credited to the individual’s Paytm wallet. Railway stations in Ahmedabad, Pune, and Mumbai have also been equipped with plastic bottle crushers.
Each machine costs an estimated Rs 4.5 lakh and has been designed in a manner that it will finely crush and release an inserted bottle as fine pieces of plastic rendering it more disposable. In addition, a cashback on one’s e-wallet is bound to encourage more and more people to use this service.
The initiative is a part of the Indian Railways’ efforts to curb plastic pollution within its premises. On the occasion of World Environment Day, it had introduced the use of eco-friendly plastic plates to serve meals.

This is indeed a very good initiative by the Indian Railways. It will surely encourage a lot of people to dispose of plastic bottles sensibly.

This is such an excellent initiative by Indian Railways!
I wish they install these plastic bottle crushers in every station of the country soon.
