After promising to "banish" plastic water bottles in the boardroom, Anand Mahindra has given one of his famous Twitter shout-outs to another innovative idea for curbing plastic pollution. This morning, the chairman of the Mahindra Group shared a picture of a water tank converted into a makeshift parking space for two scooters and praised the concept.
Mr Mahindra often gives Twitter shout-outs to innovations that exemplify the Indian spirit of jugaad. This time too, he applauded the eco-friendly parking idea for recycling a plastic water tank.
"I had tweeted about banning plastic water bottles in my office & I suppose that could apply to a number of plastic products around us," he wrote. "But good to see people creatively recycling stuff as well!"

On Tuesday, Anand Mahindra had promised to ban plastic bottles in his boardroom. The assurance came after a Twitter user responded to a photograph he shared and asked him to replace plastic bottles in the boardroom with steel ones.
"Yes, plastic bottles will be banished. We were all embarrassed to see them that day..." wrote Anand Mahindra, replying to the Twitter user.
