Yes, you heard it right! This cafe is country’s first garbage cafe here in Chhattisgarh. Under this, the Municipal Corporation provides food to the poor and homeless in lieu of plastic waste. Ambikapur, which has been selected as the second cleanest city after Indore, plans to use the plastic for construction of roads. The cafe operates from the city’s main bus stand.
First Garbage Cafe of India
The budget provides Rs 5 lakh for the Garbage Scheme. There is a plan to provide free shelter to the homeless who collect plastic waste. Ambikapur already has a road made with plastic granules and asphalt. The first such road in the state has been made in the city by mixing 8 lakh plastic bags. The road constructed by mixing plastic and asphalt is durable, because the water permeate through it.
The cafe will serve food for free for poor and homeless people in place of plastic bags
Under the campaign, the Municipal Corporation provides food for poor and homeless people of the city free of cost. Not only this, there are also arrangements for shelter with food for such people. This scheme is being linked to the cleanliness campaign. Ambikapur is the second largest city in the country in the ‘Sanitation Campaign.’ Here the use of plastic carry bags is strictly restricted.
