Club Enerji, Tata Power's nationwide movement, has played a significant role in sensitizing citizen on importance of conservation of energy and natural resources. The campaign has touched upon various cities in the country and its largely led by the school students. Following the philosophy, Lok Puram Public School and Sri Harkishnan English High School in Thane, organized an impactful rally in the adjoining areas to raise awareness for a greener and healthier environment. Around 90 students took to the streets to make the Club Enerji rally a resounding success.
The rally was organized by the Enviro Squad of the Conversation Club of Lok Puram Public School, Thane. The major objective of the rally was to interact with the vegetable vendors in & around Lok Upvan and sensitise them on the harmful effects of plastic. The students interacted with the vegetable vendors and persuaded them to reduce the usage of plastic bags. Moreover, the conversation was also aimed to persuade the vegetable vendors to convince the customers to use cloth bags to carry vegetables.
The rally started at 10:30 am from Lok Puram School and ended at 12 noon. The rally covered area around the schools and even the local markets . The students, thereafter went back to school to continue with the regular classes. Around 1000 people were sensitiesed during the rally.
