Monalisa Business Solutions (MBS), a paper bag manufacturing unit, was officially launched on Monday at Signal Angami village, Dimapur. 

Briefing about the programme, Imliben Lemtur, said that the main aim of starting the paper bag manufacturing unit was to discourage the use of polythene bags and also to provide work to womenfolk and young people. “They can come and work even for few hours a day and earn a decent amount for their economic sustenance and self-reliance instead of whiling away their time,” said Lemtur.

She also explained that the name ‘Monalisa Business Solutions’ was coined with the scope for further diversification. 

Speaking at the programme, Moa Sangtam, administrator of DMC congratulated the unit for bringing about an alternative solution towards one of the biggest pollutant.

He also highlighted on how the DMC collaborated with the NGOs to come up with an alternative by giving training to certain groups on paper making. In a place like Dimapur, it has become insufficient to meet the ends, acknowledged Sangtam.

Lauding the initiative of the unit, he expressed hope that it will not only cater to the needs of Dimapur but also to other districts as well.  

On behalf of DMC, Sangtam also assured its cooperation in terms of marketing. He encouraged the unit for sustainability, to work hard and make it a success story.  

Retired commissioner & activist against plastic pollution, LH Thangi Mannen said it was encouraging to see youths taking up such initiative to move forward. She also encouraged youths to take up environment issue which is a new avenue. “Our commitment towards the environment does not end today, we as individual should also be aware of what we are doing and how best to reduce waste that is accumulating today” Mannen added.  

The programme was also attended by Naga Women Hoho, Dimapur Naga Students Union (DNSU) and various other organisations.  

 

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
