Pilgrims hail distribution of laddus in jute bags in Tirumala
The decision has been taken by the TTD to replace the plastic carry bags with jute bags as part of its eco-friendly initiatives
Tirumala: The sale of Tirupati laddu prasadam in jute bags instead of plastic covers since last year has earned a popular response from pilgrims.
After banning the use of plastic bottles and plastic carry bags at Tirumala as an eco-friendly initiative, the TTD has been pondering over replacing the popular laddu bags as well.
As part of this environment-friendly initiative by TTD, the Jute Corporation of India came forward with a design for laddu bags, which got a good reception from devotees in view of its convenience and quality. The cost of the jute bags varies with the quantity of laddus it holds viz. five laddus holding bag is priced at Rs 25, 10 laddus bag at Rs 30, 15 laddus capacity bag at Rs 35 and 25 laddus bag at Rs 55.
Devotees are also expressing their immense satisfaction towards the TTD initiative to sell jute bags.
