At our school we are constantly trying to promote the 3 Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recyle. This scholastic year we are working towards eliminating single use plastic within our school community. For this purpose we have held a poster/logo competition where the children of the school used their creativity to design posters to create this awareness. Then 5 of these posters/logos were chosen and were printed on cloth bags. The cloth bags with the children’s original designs were going to be sold during parents day and merit week (which are not postponed) These cloth bags will be sold to parents/guardians/educators/children to promote reusing.
