Beat the plastic pollution

Beat the plastic pollution

(Making cloth bag out of old T-Shirt Activity)

Despite bringing enormous benefits some technology solutions carry their own seeds of failure and rejection by causing problems that are greater than the solutions first they offered. One with the greatest promise, comparable to fossil fuels or green revolution is the wide spectrum of materials called plastics.

Unfortunately the very properties that make them valuable- versatility, durability, multiple uses, resistance to degradation- have within a century after their introduction in to the market, made them into a life threatening menace.

The solution is not to ban plastics all of a sudden. What is now needed is an immediate stoppage of plastics use that is either not essential or is sustainable by other more environmentally benign materials.

On this note St. Kabir School Navrangpura recently conducted an activity to make cloth bags from old T-shirts which can replace plastic bags. Students of classes 8th and 9th were asked to bring materials for the activity.

Art teachers suggested the different ways they can turn an old T shirt into a cloth bag. All children enthusiastically participated in the activity . We could see a sense of satisfaction on the faces of children after the completion as they could do something for saving the environment.

Renu mam and Praveena mam explained the hazards of plastic waste and encouraged children to avoid plastic items as far as possible.
