This Gurugrammer, who has introduced a crockery bank to rent steel utensils and cut down on use of disposable spoons, containers, etc.
Neighbourhood Lifestyle Desk/Avi Arya: Angered seeing piles of disposable crockery choking the drains, and cows eating styrofoam plates after people couldn’t care to discard it properly? Gurugram resident Sameera Satija didn’t just crib and forget it soon after. By starting a crockery bank!
Steel crockery bank originally began with a few glasses and a quarter plates, in June-end, today encompasses over 400 steel utensils. Satija bought the utensils from her pocket, but friends and family are offering to contribute more utensils.
