ses, thermocol decorations and plates will be kept at bay from marriage functions.

According to the sources, people will be instead encouraged to use tumblers, plates, and other utensils made of environment-friendly materials. Police will inspect the marriage halls, convention centres, hotels and other venues of marriages. If not followed, action will be taken against the family.

‘Suchitwa Mission’, the state nodal agency for sanitation, has already launched the initiative in Kannur, Ernakulam, Kollam and Alappuzha on a pilot basis.

Director of Suchitwa Mission, C V Joy, said that the green protocol was launched as part of the government’s anti- plastic drive and Green-Kerala mission.

In a statement to PTI, he said, “The core objective of the initiative is to reduce the use of plastic in daily life. Plastic articles including glasses and plates are used in large numbers during functions, especially marriage ceremonies in the state”.

While highlighting the initiative of green protocol, he mentioned that the amount of plastic could be reduced in the long run.

“We can reuse, recycle and reduce plastic. But, even if we reuse such non-degradable articles, there will not be much decline in its presence. So, reducing its use is the more effective way to achieve our plastic-free society goal”.

In a bid of effective results, the mission has teamed up with the district administration, panchayat authorities and socio-cultural and regional outfit.

“We are planning the protocol as a sort of awareness drive. Though we have legal backing, we are trying to implement it with the support of the marriage parties and the owners of wedding halls. Mutual understanding is essential for its success,” he underscored.
