The Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL) has decided to deliver food to its staff in a green way, as part of its green initiatives. With the city seeing a surge in plastic waste because food from hotels is usually delivered in plastic carriers, KMRL has decided to use steel tiffin carriers instead, reports The New Indian Express.
The agency has tied-up with the women’s SHG Kudumbasree’s Choornikkara unit for preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner for KMRL staff.
A ten-member Kudumbasree team will cater to the request of KMRL team. The staff members would place their orders with the caterers and food will be delivered to them at workplaces including Metro stations, Muttom yard or KMRL headquarters. The price of meals is Rs 40 which can be ordered through a phone-call.
The steel carriers will be made available from the storage depot in the name of the employee on a returnable basis.
