1st June-Street Plays and Clean-up Activities

The first event for the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was organised on Ist June. The students of NCC (National Cadet Corps) performed skits in front of the people present at the Paltan Bazar and Gandhi Park. We held a clean-up drive at the clock tower as well where everyone participated with full enthusiasm and helped pick all the garbage and put them in separate bags. The students alongwith the members of ENVIS, UEPPCB as well as volunteers of Waste Warriors took a round in Paltan Bazar to check which shops did not have a dustbin put-up outside. The ones who had, were applauded and the ones who hadn't, were questioned by all of us. We made all the shopkeepers about how important it is for them to put a dustbin outside their shops and hoped that they might change their minds and do so soon.

Afterwards, we took the students to the composting area set up by Waste Warriors in Gandhi Park and informed them about how the composting of the garden waste collected in the park is done. The students seemed interested and were very interactive during the session.
