About the Event
CSR Team of Delhi Public School Gandhinagar with the NGO Catch Foundation spreading awareness “SAY NO TO PLASTIC”.
Objective of the Event
The objective of the drive was to raise awareness about the negative impacts of plastic on the environment and human health.
Delhi Public School Gandhinagar organised a campaign in association with Catch Foundation and ONGC where they launched a contest to create awareness about the hazard of plastic. Students of Pre-Primary to class V participated in this contest. The campaign ‘Say No to Single Use Plastic’ was very unique where for 500 gm plastic waste one smart canvas bag was given. Top 10 students and top 3 teachers who brought the maximum plastic waste from their homes were awarded with a trophy and a certificate. Active participation was seen from the housekeeping staff too. In the whole school the enthusiasm which was bubbling out was seen and at the end of the day we collected some 480 kg of plastic waste, 810 canvas bags were given to the students and teachers as a token of appreciation. The campaign was a super success and was praised by Principal Mr. Atanu Rath and Headmaster Mr. Rakesh Kumar Bhagat.
