Bangla Sahib Gurudwara decided to go green this year by taking the decision of banning the use of all types of single use plastic in the gurudwara complex. The Bangla Sahib gurudwara is taking much needed steps to fight climate change in it’s own way.

This thoughtful decision was taken in order to pay tribute to Guru Nanak Dev on his 550th birth anniversary. Majinder Singh Sirsa, the president of the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee announced yesterday that the holy shrine has banned the use of plastic plates, disposable spoons, glasses and thermocol cups.

On October 2nd, around 5000 polybags and plates which were used daily were replaced with jute bags and leaf bowls. The Gurudwara which serves langar to around 35,000 devotees on a daily basis has also switched to steel bowls and steel plates for doing the same and has started the use of clean piped natural gas for the preparation of the “langar”.

Apart from all this, the DSGMC has also set up a recycling plant which is capable of converting 2 tonnes of flower and langar waste to vermi compost everyday. This is a major step towards floral waste management. The fully automatic plant will be commissioned fully by the end of this month.
