Anand Mahindra Takes Twitter's Advice, Replaces Plastic Bottles with 'Re-Fillable' Ones in Boardrooms

Just months after Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra vowed to ban plastic bottles from corporate boardrooms; the business tycoon has replaced them with “re-fillable” bottles. Taking to Twitter, Anand Mahindra posted a picture of the new bottles and wrote, "Our in-house ‘Mahindra retail synergies group’ has come up with these refillable bottles to replace plastic bottles In our meeting rooms entirely. Functional but also aesthetic, I think. Dhanyavaad Team!"

The post by Anand Mahindra in which he introduced the new metal bottles soon captured the attention of people. Since being posted, it has garnered over 33,600 likes. Many praised the Mahindra Group Chairman for fulfilling his promise; others called the move a "good initiative".

Earlier in July, a Twitter user had pointed out plastic bottles in a photo of a boardroom meeting shared by Anand Mahindra and suggested that boardroom should have steel bottles instead of plastic bottles. Anand Mahindra responded to the tweet, "Plastic bottles will be banished. We were all embarrassed to see them that day."

With the initiative of replacing the plastic bottles with the "re-fillable" ones in boardroom, it seems Anand Mahindra kept his promise and incorporated the change in line with the government’s initiative to ban single-use plastic.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his 72nd Independence Day speech has urged the countrymen to ban single-use plastic by October 2, the day which marks the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

Anand Mahindra has over 7 million followers on Twitter and he has been pretty active on various social media platforms.
