We aim to...
- Create a platform where the youth can devise ideas, strategies and solutions that can contribute to reducing plastic debt and plastic pollution.
- Act as a medium for children to implement the ideas, based on the available resources and feasibility.
- Engage children in educational and hands-on activities that will create an all-round awareness and understanding of the existing problem of plastic.
We began the workshop with the students of Grade 4, who put on their capes for the day and brainstormed innovations and ideas that can help save the world from the villainous Plastic.
- A story by Aarav, Ayan, Atharv and George (Grade 4)
" Excel R-8 is a superhero robot that went to all of the Gyres on earth to clean them up. Excel R-8 was very happy that so much trash would be removed from the earth. But, he did not know if he had enough power to remove all the garbage from the Gyres. But he made up his mind that saving the earth from plastic was his number one job, and he will continue doing it till he wins one day. "

A Quick Plastic Audit
Having understood and realized the repercussions and dangers of plastic consumption on animals, environment and even human beings, the students of Grade 5 and 6 came up with innovative ideas and solutions to replace plastic in day-to-day lives, with a hope to create a plastic-free future for the Earth!
- by Durga, Krisha, Michelle, Maanya and Jessica (Grade 5)
" We can invent Eco-friendly tubes that are submerged into the ocean and has special detectors that can detect and suck only plastic, without harming any of the marine animals. The collected plastic waste should then be sent to the recycling centers."
Sancia Kairo of Grade 6 shared easy ways in which students can reduce plastic pollution within their schools and campus:
- We can bring steel bottles and refill it in our schools, instead of using plastic bottles.
- We should throw waste such as juice boxes and chips packets in recycle bins.
- To make the students more aware, campaigns and workshops should be regularly organized in the school.
- We can reuse waste plastic bottles by creating pencil holders and use it in our classrooms.
- We can arrange 'Best out of Plastic Waste' competitions in the school.
