We need transformative solutions and innovative technologies to combat e-waste which is going to pose a major challenge in the coming decades" said Dr G Satheesh Reddy, DRDO Chairman.
All the DRDO labs and establishments across the country participated in the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan in their respective locations.
According to an official statement, DRDO headquarters based in Delhi today completed one year of total ban on single use plastic water bottles and replacing it with glass water bottles. This initiative is being implemented in all the other labs and establishments of DRDO leading to significant reduction in single use plastics.
"Every citizen of India must actively participate in the Swachh Bharat Mission and contribute towards building a clean and healthy eco-system. Small steps taken today will have a lasting imprint on the global environment," Dr Reddy added. (ANI)
