The Honourable Chief Minister
Sikkim , India
STYROFOAM /POLYSTYRENE is an important component of Solid waste generated in Sikkim which has no use as a waste and cannot be recycled in the present infrastructural capacity of solid waste management in Sikkim. The lifetime of Styrofoam / Polystyrene has been found to be atleast 2000 years and will have devastating effect for our future generation . We would like to request you to kindly pass a legislation to ban the indiscriminate use of styrofoam in Sikkim and if it has been used as a packaging material , then the producer of that packaged item should be held responsible to take back the styrofoam packaging material to safely dispose it outside Sikkim.
We the people of Sikkim would be indebted to this noble gesture from your side.
Thanking You ,
With Due respects and humble submissions ,
The BAN STYROFOAM FROM SIKKIM GROUP
As it is an environmentl hazard
