AIGMF joins hand with Swachh Bharat to promote glass

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

The All Glass Manufacturers' Federation (AIGMF) has joined hands with Swachh Abhiyan to promote glass as a sustainable packaging material.

"Ever since the announcement made by the government on Swachh Abhiyan (Clean Campaign) and Smart Cities, Glass Industry has made sincere efforts to showcase glass as an excellent building material for smart and solar cities. Similarly, glass being a sustainable packaging material supplements Swachh Abhiyan," AIGMF President Sanjay Ganjoo said here today.

An interactive session supporting Abhiyan was held here in association with Central Glass and Ceramics Research Institute.

AIGMF Senior VP A K Dukkipati quoting a Swedish report said plastic packaging contaminates food with endocrine disrupting chemicals.
