"This is a green polling booth in Tirupathur District in TN set up by the District Collector with our young Green fellows working under the TN Climate Change Mission. Around 10 such booths have been made across the state. To beat the heat, coconut and bamboo leaves are used to shade. Banana and Palm leaves welcomed voters. Signages are made from handwritten cloth banners, avoiding flex material. These were also single-use plastic-free booths," wrote IAS Supriya Sahu in the caption of her post.
