New Delhi, April 19: Mother Dairy today said it will sell jute bags at its milk booths and Safal retail stores in the national capital region as part of its green initiative to discourage the usage of plastic bags.

The jute carry bags will be sourced from Bird Jute and Exports Ltd, a public sector undertaking under the Ministry of Textiles.

The jute carry bags will be priced at Rs 25 in the milk booths, while a larger size, suitable for carrying vegetables and groceries, will be available at Safal outlets for Rs 34. This 'green initiative' was unveiled by Union Textiles Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar in the presence of Mother Dairy officials at a ceremony here today.

"By offering jute carry bags to our consumers at a nominal cost, we not only address the need for an environment–friendly alternative of carry bags but also benefit millions of our farmers engaged in cultivation of jute," Mother Dairy MD S Nagarajan said in a statement.
