Say No To Plastic
On the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and 115th birth anniversary of Lal Bahadur Shastri India is marching ahead to become a developed nation. Indians have taken upon themselves to make India green and clean by participating in “Swachata Abhiyan” wholeheartedly.
The citizenry has also pledged to eradicate the use of single-use plastic in our day to day life and promoting use of alternative materials which are eco-friendly and biodegradable like jute, cotton, paper, and wood.
Both of the above activities have gathered a countrywide momentum due to the participation of more than billion people. It is emanating the feeling of positivity all around – strengthening the social fabric of holistic wellness with patriotism.
Students of Shri Vishwakarma Skill University celebrated the 2 October in their own inimitable style. They conducted a public awareness program by taking out a rally in the streets of Sohna, telling the people to “Say NO to Plastic”.
At Shiv Nagari, Sohna, the girl students took the initiative to convince the shopkeepers not to give plastic carry bags to their customers and presented them with some cotton and jute bags as alternatives. The shopkeepers warmly responded to the idea and appeal with immense positivity and promised to reduce use of single-use plastic.
The students also interacted with general public and shared the same thought of shunning the use of plastics. Many of the customers took the pledge not to use plastics any more.
Before embarking on the campaign, all students conducted a “Swachata Abhiyan” at WIT, Sohna.
It was indeed a very genuine and student-driven initiative by Shri Vishwakarma Skill University, conceptualised by Shri Raj Nehru, Honorary Vice Chancellor, meticulously planned by Prof (Dr) Randhir Singh Rathore, Dean Academics, executed by Prof (Dr) Ashok Shrivastava, Dean Engineering and his dynamic team of Jagbir, Puneet, Rahul, Gopal and Jayant, along with zealous “Eco warriors” and “Earth lovers” students of the university.
