World Environment Day June 5

1. Reduction of shampoo sachets at Chitray car wash. Vice Chairman Darjeeling Municipality to officially launch it at 9:30 am at Chitray.  Each car uses at least one shampoo sachet when it gets washed and the sachets gets thrown into the jhora. An average of 100 sachets are thrown everyday. We hope to reduce it by enabling the car wash to use large bottles rather than sachets.
