To banish the polythene bags from Chandigarh city, with advent of New Year 2019 Department of Environment in collaboration with Yuvsatta-an NGO launched a ‘Chandigarh Says Good-bye Polythene Bags’ campaign. As part of the initiative, Yuvsatta volunteers along with ‘Raahat’ Welfare Committee of Guru Gobind Singh College for Women spread the message of ‘Say NO to Polythene Bags’ at Elaine Mall, Chandigarh. A street play ‘Poly-Raja’ was staged and over 500 free cloth bags were distributed to motivate more and more people adopting environmental friendly lifestyle by discarding use of polythene bags. 
Sharing his concerns Debendra Dalai, Director, Department of Environment and Vice Chairman of Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee said that such forward stepping has to be carried forward in a sustained manner, experience tells that such crusades didn’t kick sky-high dust in the beginning, but given the time and sustenance do snowball unto a people’s movement, it is obvious that each one of us has to become a nucleus/hub center towards the eventual goal of ‘Clean & Green Chandigarh’. Prominent amongst those who were present on the occasion included Dr. Abdul Qayum, Dy. Conservator of Forests, Department of Forests & Environment, Chandigarh Administration Thrinath K, Centre Head, Elante Mall, Kulbhushan Kanwar, Environmentalist and Pramod Sharma, Coordinator of Yuvsatta-NGO.
