Tiny tots in this Charkhi Dadri school pledge to say ‘no to plastic’

Nursery and KG students of Apeejay School spread awareness on harmful effects of plastic usage



Plastic has become a very useful component in contemporary life, but its global use might hinder human sustainability. The decomposition of plastic creates ozone-depleting substances that are dangerous for the environment.

Realising to discard the use of plastics that is invading our planet, the tiny tots from Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri take it as their moral duty to initiate something concrete to reduce the usage of the same. The school recently organised a programme: ‘Say no to plastic’ to further inculcate awareness among young students.

The learners of Nursery and KG conveyed valuable messages that plastic is most difficult to recycle and if we contaminate the environment with plastic, we generate great damage, especially for the sea and oceans.

Students conveyed these messages via poem recitation as well as delivered short enriching speeches. The teachers also encouraged tiny tots to write slogans for not using plastic bags. The students not only highlighted the problem of incessant plastic usage in detail, but also brought light on the possible solutions to reduce the use of plastic.

A single plastic bag takes up to thousand years to decompose as it contains non-renewable petrochemicals and they will stay for a more extended period and damage Mother Nature. Hence, these young learners appealed each other to say ‘no to plastic bags’ as they are a threat to the environment. 

Further adding, Rudrendra Basak, Principal of Apeejay, Charkhi Dadri highlighted the importance of preserving Mother Earth by reducing the usage of plastic. He emphasised on using natural biodegradable materials which are good for the environment. He also congratulated the young ones for their appreciable efforts.
