    Our Story of Change
    Lt. Smt. ShantabaiLadkat English Medium School, Pune
  • 2. Step 1: FEEL
    We live in a community in Pune where the use of plastic bags is rampant despite a state-wide ban on them. We have learnt how harmful plastic is to the environment. This problem bothered us a lot.
  • 3. Learning More
    Our teacher also showed us a documentary on the damage that plastic does.
    We learned a lot more about the harmful effects of plastic around us.
  • 4. Step 2: IMAGINE
    We discussed ideas with our teacher and came up with the following:
    A street play/skit to generate awareness.
    Learning how to make paper bags.
    Giving the paper bags to the shopkeepers in our community.
    OUR CATCHPHRASE
    BAGS OF PAPER – BETTER OFF PUNE!
  • 5. Why Paper Bags?
    We wanted to provide people with an alternative to plastic while telling them how using plastic harms the environment.

    Teach women in our community (self-help groups) how to make paper bags and facilitate paper bag sales for them by providing free paper bag as samples to shopkeepers.
    STEP 3: ADVOCATE
    1. Prepare enough sample bags to give to the shopkeepers in our community as samples.2. Stage a skit to generate awareness.
    3. Teaching other school children how to make paper bags as well.
    STEP 4: Convince shopkeepers to stop giving plastic bags and start using paper bags
  • 7. Step 3: DO
    We learnt how to make paper bags from our teacher
  • 8. Making paper bags
    We got help from Rotary club in Pune, who donated us extra newspapers to help make our bags.
    We prepared different kinds of bags according to differing shopkeepers’ needs.
  • 9. Advocating
    We invited parents and teachers and staged a skit about the dangers of using plastic bags.
  • 10. Advocating
    We went around our community with the paper bags we had prepared.
    For every paper bag we gave, we took 5 plastic bags from the shopkeepers.
    IMPACT: 500 paper bags given. 2500 Plastic bags collected.
  • 11. Spreading
    We also spread this around our community by teaching women how to make paper bags, so that they could sell them and earn money.
    IMPACT: 500 paper bags given. 2500 Plastic bags collected.
  • 12. How we were ‘Changed’
    We learnt the importance of teamwork and were grateful for the support we got from so many places.
