  • 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.  We decided to learn how to make paper bags so that we could give them to the shopkeepers in our community who were still using plastic.
  • 6. STEP 1: Learn how to make paper bags STEP 3: SPREAD 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 STEP 2: Make 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.
