About the activity: A team of 10 member of college had conducted Plastic Waste free Campaign in the 5 adopted villages namely Bagdiha, Chaltha, Makhnu, Kulam and Ledapkaur in the Ranibandh subdivision of Bankura District of West Bengal. The Head of the Institution conducted an elaborate awareness campaign in local primary schools where a large number of people had gathered and were successfully impacted by the lectures and poster campaign.
In contrast to urban cleaning drive we found comparatively less plastic waste generated by the rural communities in the adopted villages. The college ensured that the word of awareness be spread far and wide in the villages so a recorded message was delivered through a loud speaker mounted on a local vehicle which commuted to the remotest areas of the villages. In contrast to urban cleaning drive, it was heartening to find comparatively less plastic waste generated by the rural communities in the adopted villages. Seeing their response, we feel certain that the effect of this awareness campaign will not be short lived and they will continue to practice eco-friendly activities for a plastic free clean environment.
