  13. 13. Changing  environment  and  attitudes  There  is  waste  everywhere,  around  the  class  buildings,  on  the  playgrounds,  mountains  of  garbage  piled  everywhere.  Not  only  where  the  wastes  destroying  the  aesthetic  beauty  of  our  school  it  is  also  becoming  a  health  hazard  by  attracting  flies  and  stray  dogs  to  the  school  campus.  The  smell  from  the  waste  is  also  becoming  unbearable  to  the  people.  While  looking  around  the  campus,  we  found  out  that  majority  of  the  waste  are  from  plastics  wrappers  and  plastic  bottles,  which  was  both  relief  and  stress  at  the  same  time.  Relief  because  plastic  wastes  and  recyclable  and  by  selling  to  recycle  companies  we  could  make  extra  money,  stress  because  if  plastic  wastes  are  not  taken  care  of  they  are  not  organic  and  will  take  centuries  to  decompose.  Our  aim  was  double  edged,  we  want  to  reduce  waste  and  change  student’s  attitudes  about  wastes  at  the  same  time.  Just  reducing  waste  would  be  a  short  term  solution,  but  if  we  are  successful  with  inculcating  proper  waste  disposal  habits  into  our  students  minds,  the  benefits  is  going  to  be  long  term.  Different  ways  of  reducing  wastes  were  suggested;  banning  plastics  from  the  schools,  limiting  bringing  plastic  wrapped  food  items  to  one  day  a  week,  holding  competition  among  classes  every  month  to  see  who  collects  the  most  plastic  materials,  selling  recyclables  to  recycling  companies,  turning  plastic  wastes  into  useful  cushions.  We  discussed  the  ideas  and  decided  that  banning  of  plastics  is  not  desirable  because  almost  all  food  comes  packaged  in  plastics  and  they  are  hygienic.  Limiting  plastic  containers  and  bags  would  force  students  to  use  unhealthy  packaging  food  putting  their  health  in  danger.  So  we  decided  that  reducing  waste  with  an  incentive  will  be  our  best  option.    By  awarding  monthly  prizes  to  class  that  collect  the  most  plastic  bags,  it  creates  competition  and  sense  of  accomplishment  among  the  students  and  helps  reduce  wastes.  So  we  gathered  around  and  discussed  ways  to  address  the  issues,  we  came  up  with  the  ever  popular  and  catchy  three  Rs(  Reuse,  reduce  and  recycle).    Various  ideas  we  came  up  with  are  to  collect  the  waste  and  turn  them  into  something  useful  .Hundreds  of  bags  of  plastics  materials  are  collected  by  DFC  members  and  through  the  monthly  competition  held  by  DFC.  Some  plastics  were  turned  in  beautiful  plastic  cushions.  We  are  already  beginning  to  see  the  changes  both  in  the  environment  and  attitudes  of  our  students.  The  school  is  starting  to  look  more  like  a  learning  environment  safe  and  clean  for  our  students  to  study  and  beautiful  to  look  for  the  outsiders.  Student’s  attitudes  are  beginning  to  change,  now  everyone  is  conscious  of  dumping  wastes  everywhere.  Students  are  taking  care  not    to  litter  everywhere  and  picking  up  litters  and  saving  them  to  hand  over  to  the  DFC  club.
