Club Enerji, Tata Power's nationwide movement, has been working relentlessly towards spreading the message of being responsible citizens through various drives across the country and instilling civic and moral values among various stakeholders. In line with this commitment, Tata Power’s Club Enerji students from Pawar Public School, Bhandup organised a ‘No Plastic Drive’ to create awareness about the ill effects of using plastic bags.
The objective of this initiative was to sensitize locals on the environmental and health hazards that are triggered as a result of using plastic. Students preached to adopt eco-friendly ways and persuaded the local vendors and hawkers to use paper bags instead of plastic bags. More than 1000 paper bags were distributed outside the railway station to pedestrians, shopkeepers and hawkers. About 50 students walked in a procession carrying placards, and raising slogans of ‘Swacch Mumbai, Harit Mumbai,’ Say no to plastic’, ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’. A signature campaign was also organised alongside, to support the ‘No Plastic Drive’.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Anil Sardana, CEO & MD, Tata Power, said, “We, are delighted with the response we have received on the No plastic drive at Bhandup. We sincerely believe that our Club Enerji students are doing a commendable job in terms creating awareness and we thank them for their consistent efforts. Once again the students have proved that are they are the most effective ambassadors for green practices.”
The initiative was well appreciated by the public, who commended the efforts of the students in trying to create a desirable change in the conservation of the environment.
