Go Trash less

-Ms. Snehal D’Mello

On 5th July 2017, Green Schools Campaign 2017-2018 was flagged off with Teachers Orientation Program where over 50 schools attended. We too were participants at this momentous occasion. The theme for the year is “Go Trashless” keeping in mind the growing need to keep our environment clean. Our lifesytyle impacts the environment, and there’s a need to arrive at ways to overcome these issues by mapping, managing and minimizing trash which would be highlighted during the year’s campaign.

The workshop began with words of welcome by Fr. Savio Silveira and a presentation of the video ‘where does the garbage go’. Later there was a panel session with Mrs. Jyoti Mhapsekar and Mrs. Seema Redkar, both pioneers in the field of waste management. The topics for discussion included  ‘Waste to Resourse’ and ‘Advanced locality management program’.
