On his final day in Japan's Hiroshima for the G7 Summit, PM Modi wore a sports jacket made of recycled materials

During the recent G7 Conference in Japan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was dressed in a sleeveless jacket. But because it was constructed of recycled materials, it wasn't just any old jacket.

The beige "sadri" jacket the PM wore at the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima, according to officials, was composed of recycled materials.

Earlier today, PM Modi wore the jacket while visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Plaza and the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima.

He left floral offerings at the memorial museum created in honour of those who lost their lives when the Americans dropped an atomic bomb on this Japanese city in 1945, bringing an end to World War II.

Several foreign leaders including the Japanese Fumio Kishida and the Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese were with him. According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he also signed the visitor's book in the museum.

PM Narendra Modi met with numerous world leaders during his three-day trip to Japan for the G7 Summit, including US President Joe Biden, UK counterpart Rishi Sunak, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs tweeted pictures of Modi visiting the museum at the memorial site and wrote: "A homage to the remembrance of Hiroshima victims. PM Narendra Modi visits the Peace Memorial Museum to start his day, where he looks over the recorded displays and signs the visitor's log."

Also, the ministry tweeted a photo of the G7 Summit attendees in a group, writing, "The leaders also paid their respects at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park."

PM Modi has already supported environmentally friendly goods. PM Modi attended the Parliament in a sleeveless sky-blue jacket earlier in February.

During the India Energy Week in Bengaluru on February 6, the Indian Oil Company (IOC) presented him with a Nehru jacket fashioned out of recycled plastic bottles.

Modi is in Japan for three of the G7 summit's sessions. On Saturday, outside of the G7 conference, PM Modi had meetings with Sunak, Joko Widodo, the president of Indonesia, and Antonio Guterres.
