Debunking Myths about Plastic

Ekonnect Knowledge Foundation, Legasis Partners and Bombay Stock Exchange held a panel discussion on Beating the Plastic on the World Environment Day. 

Shankar Jadhav, Managing Director - BSE Investments Ltd. Head - Strategy Legal Commercial Infrastructure Marketing & Corporate Communication of BSE gave the opening remarks. Pranav Bhardwaj of Environmental Management Centre LLP spoke about the plastic menace. Suhas Tuljapurkar, Managing Partner of Legasis explained the background of the recently introduced Plastic Ban by the Government of Maharashtra. 

A short video on the problem of plastic in the marine environment was screened.  This was followed by a panel discussion. The panelists included Rajan Raje of Nichem, Dieepesh Pancholi from PlasticMaker Hub, Chandrakant Tambe from Bandra H Ward of Mumbai Corporation and Ashish Mehta of Mumbai Sustainability Centre. Dr. Prasad Modak conducted the panel discussion.  Response from the participants was overwhelming and there were very productive discussions. It is now proposed to prepare a white paper on responsible plastic waste management for the interest of public and key stakeholders.   

Ekonnect, Legasis and BSE will work together and continue joint efforts in this direction.
