|Eicher School stepped into its 25th year since its inception in 1994. Students decided to begin the celebration by contributing their bit to the environment. As a first step, students of class XI and XII commerce & humanities surveyed the markets to find out the use of plastic bags and if they can be replaced by newspaper bags. The response they received was overwhelming. They also understood that the local vendors usually use plastic bags because of their durability & low cost.
Thereafter all the students across school made newspaper bags which were then distributed by students of V and VI to the vendors of NIT-1,2,3,5, 21-C,46, Green Field, Green Valley etc. More than 4500 newspaper bags were made and distributed.
It was a great effort taken by the Eicherites to reduce the use of plastic bags and save environment from the hazards that plastic bags pose. They decided to carry on this activity throughout the year and in the coming years too.
|As the school steps into its 25th year, we pledge to contribute our bit to save the environment. As a first step, students are making newspaper bags to distribube them to the shopkeepers to mininise use of polly bags.|
