Feedback Foundation [FF] in association with the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) team launched waste reduction initiative in Greater Noida. Under this initiative a Bartan Bank was established in the Siddhababa temple in Khairpur Gurjar village. The main objective of this initiative is to replace the use of plastic plates, spoons, and glasses with steel alternatives and make the premises plastic-free.
