Now this State Govt. directs all Weddings to be ‘Plastic Free’ and Environment friendly

June 7,2017

The Pilot Project has been started in Four Districts of the State.

Plastic Free Weddings

Wedding ceremonies in Kerala are all set to become ‘Green’! The state govt. is coming out with a green-protocol to make such auspicious occasions more nature-friendly.

With the implementation of this Green-protocol, plastic & other non-degradable articles including disposable plates & glasses plus thermocol decorations’ll be kept at bay from the wedding functions.

Instead of this, people’d be persuaded to use plates, tumblers etc. made of glass & environment-friendly metals, officials sources said.

Inspections’ll be held at the marriage halls, hotels & convention centres & various other venues of the wedding ceremony & action would be taken if this protocol is violated, the sources said.

The state nodal agency for sanitation – ‘Suchitwa Mission’, has already launched this initiative in Kannur, Kollam, Ernakulam & Alappuzha.

C. V. Joy, Director (Operations), Suchitwa Mission, said that the green-protocol was launched as part of the govt’s Anti-plastic drive & Green-Kerala Mission.

The core objective of this initiative is to reduce the use of plastic in daily life.


Special squads comprising officials of the ‘Suchitwa Mission’ & Revenue dept., have been formed to carry out inspections in the wedding halls & videograph the wedding ceremony.

Action’d be taken on the bases of nature of utensils & articles used there.

“District administration is issuing Green marriage certificate for those weddings which completely abide by the protocol” the Director said.
