September 2022 - October 31, 2022

The project idea was born when Mr. Rishi Agarwal was invited by Ms. Gandhi to the Human Library, the 1st event of Nature Nurturers. He mentioned in his talk about “donating” the plastic waste to the Safai Bank, which utilizes plastic wrappers for generating energy and road-building. The idea was to spread awareness and remind people about how much plastic waste we generate, unmindful or unconsciously, and that it is hazardous to the environment and wildlife. The club spread awareness about plastic waste and promoted the project in the junior college classrooms as well as via Instagram, readied 3 bins labelled with 'plastic waste collection' in the college premises, and the in-charge teacher and some other students deposited the plastic wrappers in the bin. This plastic waste was then couriered by the club to the Safai Bank on October 31, 2022.
