Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh: Bisleri International Pvt. Ltd. partnered with Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam and Delhi-based NGO Indian Pollution Control Association (IPCA) to unveil Gazab Street, a distinctive street made using recycled plastic waste. Gazab street has been conceptualized with the aim to beautify the abandoned street that was once covered with dirt and filth.
The 250-meter-long street has been adorned with panels made from recycled plastic waste on one side. These panels have been further furnished with vertical gardens designed by using the old unused 20 litre plastic jars and 2 litre bottles.
The other wall alongside the road displays colourful murals with impactful messages on saving the environment. Besides, slabs covering the drain passing through the street are made from recycled plastic waste. The entire street is set up with benches made from recycled plastic making it an Instagram-able tourist spot to sit, relax and admire the beauty.
Ghaziabad Mayor Asha Sharma inaugurated the street in the presence of Amrit Abhijat, Principal Secretary, Urban Development Department, Uttar Pradesh, Mahender Singh Tanwar, Commissioner, Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam, and Ashish Jain, Founder-Director, Indian Pollution Control Association.
Speaking about the initiative Mahender Singh Tanwar, Commissioner, Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam, said, “Such types of projects are the need of the hour and more such streets should be developed to promote recycling of plastic waste. This will motivate people to adopt waste recycling and reusing.”
