No plastic in Pashupati area now

Kathmandu, March 29: The Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) has urged visitors to the temple not to carry plastic materials, bearing in mind the increasing environmental pollution around the temple area.

The Trust today issued a notice informing the public about its decision to ban plastic materials on the temple premises from today, citing it as a major cause of increasing pollution in the temple area.

It has sought the cooperation from all to implement the decision. The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation’s three-month long weekly cleanliness campaign is underway in the Pashupati area.

Its schedule is 8:00 am to 10:00 am on each Saturday and the PADT has urged one and all to be the part of the campaign.
