In 1998, Sikkim made its first strides towards restricting plastic water bottles. Bundled drinking water was then prohibited in 2016 in government workplaces and at government events.
With a population of about 2,500, Lachen draws lakhs of nature lovers consistently. While the travel industry has been on the ascent, so has plastic containers left by travelers which provoked the townsfolk to boycott the utilization of bundled drinking water totally. Presently, to energize the utilization of Eco friendly water bottles, the town has chosen to present water bottles made of bamboo.
This town has been confronting a lot of issues because of plastic water bottles strewn by travelers throughout the years. The local environmentalists and tourism authority chose to boycott plastic containers and present bamboo water bottles, which have been requested from Assam through Sikkim Rajya Sabha MP Hishey Lachungpa.
Travelers visiting Lachen were asked to either leave their plastic bottles outside or move their water into reusable containers that were accessible at most shops.
The bamboo bottles are set to be introduced during the Lachen Losar celebration not long from now. Up until this point, the town has placed in a request for thousands of such bamboo containers.
