Pakka Ltd Unites with Ayodhya Ram Mandir Trust to Spearhead UP Govt’s Green Revolution for Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Ayodhya

Ram Mandir Trust has chosen CHUK (an offering of Pakka Ltd)  as the official compostable  tableware brand to be present in the premises of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

Ahead of the much-awaited inauguration of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Pakka Limited, formerly known as Yash Pakka Limited, a manufacturer of compostable packaging solutions, has forged a sustainable alliance with Ram Mandir Trust. This partnership aims to foster sustainability and eco-friendly practices during and after the momentous event in Ayodhya around the premises of Ram Mandir.

The collaboration aims to promote sustainability, reduce waste, and create a positive environmental impact in accordance with Uttar Pradesh Government’s initiative to make Ayodhya a plastic free zone. By using CHUK’s compostable tableware, the Ayodhya Mandir Trust seeks to set an example of eco-friendly practices and inspire others to adopt sustainable alternatives. CHUK is also committed to making a positive impact on the local community in Ayodhya, aligning with Pakka’s broader mission to contribute to a cleaner earth.

Based in Ayodhya, Pakka Limited specializes in manufacturing compostable packaging solutions from locally sourced sugarcane waste also known as bagasse. Pakka’s flagship brand, CHUK, known for its compostable tableware, has been selected by the Ram Mandir Trust for the inauguration event. For the distribution of tableware before and after the Ayodhya mandir inauguration event, CHUK plans to provide up to 10 lakh pieces of compostable tableware. By offering a substantial number of disposables, CHUK aims to ensure that the event and its associated activities are carried out with a strong focus on eco-friendly practices.

Mr. Jagdeep Hira, India Business Head of Pakka said, “As Ayodhya prepares to welcome millions of devotees for the inauguration of the Ram Mandir, Pakka looks forward to playing its part in fostering a sustainable legacy. Through this collaboration with Ram Mandir Trust, we will be offering compostable tableware to the temple which aligns with the values of this sacred occasion. By emphasizing environmental responsibility, reverence for nature, and the preservation of our sacred surroundings, we aim to contribute to a greener Ayodhya.”

The Uttar Pradesh Government has initiated the Single Use Plastic Free Ayodhya Campaign – RACE, a grassroots movement committed to creating a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable community. It is a passionate group of individuals dedicated to reducing the impact of plastic pollution on the city. Under the Campaign, due to effective implementation of restrictions on collection, recycling and related issues, many businesses participated in the massive public awareness campaign workshop.
