Bag-loads of Eco-consciousness

RS Sept blog

 

It is hard not to miss the messages and detrimental outcomes of environmental pollution and its toll on human health and the planet. Green measures are practiced in RDF daily – right from using discarded firewood for cooking, to using ash for cleaning utensils and growing some of our own food for the midday meal. As part of the Social Awareness Program, students in RDF Redlawada School wanted to make their community aware about the ill effects of using plastic. They went a step further and made paper bags out of old examination question papers and envelopes. They then went to some villages around their school to distribute the bags. They explained why plastic causes contamination, is non biodegradable and causes harm. They urged and motivated the villagers to switch to using paper bags. Their forthrightness and social message was appreciated by the villagers and now they are proactively trying to significantly reduce the use of plastic.
